Worst of all fifty states; worse than South Carolina and worse than Michigan: that’s why Georgia’s gets an F on its corruption risk report card from State Integrity Investigation. Gov. Nathan Deal did just sign an ethics bill, but as William Perry, executive director of Common Cause Georgia says,
“It’s like you’re starving for a meal and somebody gave you a saltine cracker.
It’s chock full of loopholes.”
I wonder if this lack of ethics in state government has anything to do with widespread rural poverty in Georgia?
