I’m having a good-natured taunt match with TPM Reader SJ over whether Illinois is corrupt enough to take on the combined combination of the Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey & Connecticut). And she may have a point. But before anybody gets too cocky, there are a lot of sleeper contestants out there that most people don’t even think of. Like another state I used to live in: Rhode Island. On a per capita basis, Rhode Island might easily be the most corrupt state in the union.
So let’s throw it open and really find out who’s got what it takes. What’s the most corrupt state in the union?
And don’t just assert it. Talk is cheap. Gimme an argument why your state of choice really deserves to be called the most corrupt state in the union..
Bring it on!
