Nevada Ranks 9th as Most Corruptible State
Nevada Ranks 9th as Most Corruptible State

AIR DATE: March 22, 2012

Well, the grades are in for Most Corruptible State, and Nevada placed ninth.  We didn't flunk, but we also got a "D-."  So what makes us so corruptible?  Is it all the gambling?  The mortgage fraud?  Or, as the study's investigator put it, the "part-time lawmakers [who]... all face potential conflicts."  What were the judging criteria for Nevada?  Which states got an "A," and which states got an "F"?  And what can we do to improve?

I have a problem with made up numbers being thrown around as to how much college grads make. I worked with a large number of college grads who made minimum wage. Having a college degree does not guarantee high wages.
