    It costs us money.

    A study by researchers from Indiana University and the University of Hong Kong estimates that corruption on the state level is costing Americans in the 10 most corrupt states an average of $1,308 per year, or 5.2% of those states’ average expenditures per year.

    Links to articles in Fortune magazine as well as the study itself in the Public Administration Review.

    Connecticut's got to be more corrupt than that--I mean, Chris Dodd alone is worth +50!
