Illinois Most Corrupt State? Nah, Florida's Still Got It.
The New York Times' Bill Marsh found the statistics. When it comes to corruption, Florida crushes Illinois in terms of raw number of convicted officials. We're No. 1, with New York a rather distant second. Chicago's state falls all the way down the list to the seventh spot.
Yeah. That's what I thought. Hell, look at it this way, even with Gov. Blago's arrest last week, little old Deerfield Beach, pop. 80,000, whupped Illinois all by itself with two arrests at City Hall.
And something tells me -- let's call it intuition -- that our numbers are going to keep climbing.
