Policy Mic put together a comprehensive list here of their analysis of the 10 most corrupt states in America. I see New York is not on the either list of Most or Least, so where does it fall? Although I have never lived in Louisiana have researched and read about the atrocities that take place there, especially with the police/government. Did your City Make the List. Check out the Deets from Policy Mic and Share!

Key findings: The study looked at 25,000 convictions of violating federal anti-corruption laws between 1976 and 2008, and also generated a "corruption index" comparing convictions and the amount of government employees. After looking at the data, the researchers determined the top 10 most corrupt states are:

1. Mississippi
2. Louisiana
3. Tennessee
4. Illinois
5. Pennsylvania
