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?
