Corruption exists – we often look at Illinois (Governors there), Massachuesetts (Hmm, Speakers of the House, Representatives); and of, the State of Huey Long (Louisiana). But in looking at this chart, based on the number of public officials jailed per 100,000 residents, who’da thunk that both North and South Dakota were hotbeds of public officials on the take?
I, for one, am glad to see that NH is amongst the most corrupt free. Perhaps it is because most of our elected officials are paid so little and that volunteerism amongst local officials is the norm rather the exception compared to most others around the country? Or can we just chalk it up to have a better moral fiber here in NH?
