|In the first State Integrity Investigation conducted by multiple watchdog groups, the state of Georgia came in dead last, although it was not the only government to receive a failing grade.
After assessing transparency, accountability and anti-corruption mechanisms in all 50 states, the investigation by the Center for Public Integrity, Global Integrity and Public Radio International (PRI) decided that not a single state deserved an 'A' grade.
Only five states earned a B grade: New Jersey, Connecticut, Washington, California and Nebraska.
A total of 19 states got C's and 18 received D's.
Eight states failed: Michigan, North Dakota, South Carolina, Maine, Virginia, Wyoming, South Dakota and Georgia...but Georgia has the dubious distinction of ranking DEAD LAST.
