I guess it is unfair to compare professionals to amateurs.
The former swamp along the Maryland-Virginia border...........
Pre and Post Bobby Jindal Louisiana.Bobby has given the state coffers a respite from being plundered while he is governor.The Landrieus will place the state back on its crooked course once Bobby leaves.
I’m gonna take.a stab at this:
1600 Pennsyvania and that building at the other end of street.....
Just a guess though....
Former swamp? I don’t see the improvement. The place exudes a fetid odor and is filled with slimy creatures.
Chicago and chocolate city. Btw, where’s Nagin these days?
The Kilpatrick cabal is on trial now.
Prince George’s County, MD
Swamps are beautiful, useful, natural resources. They have turned it into a quagmire...........
Congratulations, Governor Bobby Jindal
It appears you finally have Louisiana out of the Top Five.
” Btw, wheres Nagin these days?”
Last I heard the bus driver was close to being indicted for corruption and taking kickbacks while he was mayor of the swimming pool.
That’s easy its 68.3 Sq Miles Located between Maryland and Virginia.
It’s my opinion that the devil’s triangle of Boston, Providence and Hartford is, per capita, the most corrupt 2200 square miles in the country.
Based upon what criteria?
Amount of monies? (Wall Street would get my vote)
Effect on GDP or other macroeconomic data? (Wash, DC)
Or per capita acceptance of criminality? (Throw dart at Chicago, Trenton/Camden, NJ, Baltimore, Philly, Gary, IN)
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Detroit suffers like a third world nation where a small number of people control all parts of the city government. I would view that corruption as bribes, theft, and incompetence.
Chicago is a pay to play city. You literally can't do business in that town without paying off the various levels of government. I knew a guy that wanted to bid on a contract with the city. At the office controlling the bidding process he was told he needed to hire a specific consultant to "guide" him through the application process or he wouldn't be considered for the contract.
Detroit doesn't have enough $ for bribes.
They have thoroughly and royally Freeped!
Now Chicagoland is WAY ahead.
At one SE KY (Appalachia) was considered among the most corrupt parts of the country, but I don’t know if the anti-poverty programs worked there. It’s an area one might not have thought of.
Back in the 1950’s, Life Magazine (it was reasonably fair back then) ran an article on Hudson County New Jersey as the most corrupt county in the Country.
Based on what I’ve heard about the place, it probably still is. A Democrat stronghold, they raise the dead there and let them vote. Not only that, they even change party affiliation from Republican to Democrat in gratitude!!!!
Since ILL-ANNOY has two consecutive governors serving Federal prison time, it HAS TO BE ILL-ANNOY aka Madiganistan.
Sacramento belongs on this list.
