"There's no contest here! New Jersey! Have you all forgotten the absolutely brazen, no shame, slap in the face to The Rule of Law, decision given by the NJSC in the case of Torricelli/Forrester?"

I have to vote for New Jersey as the most corrupt. I mean, you name the crime and they have it.

NO NO, wait. Here in IL we've had the most corrupt REPUBLICAN (i'm embarrassed to say) governor EVER - in fact, he may be the most corrupt governor, ever, of either party here in IL. Every one of his cronies were indicted and either convicted or have yet to be convicted (hopefully) of selling drivers licenses to unfit haulers, for bribes, and this has been responsible for multiple deaths on IL highways due to drivers who couldn't control their rigs and who killed and killed and killed.

Then of course, we have Mayor Daley in Chicago, who has to be the absolute characature of a sleazeball. The Chicago aldermen/women just voted for slavery reparations. The gubernatorial race is between an honest guy (Jim Ryan - no relations George Ryan - our current criminal governor) and Rod Blagoyavich - I call him bag'oshits (as do many) - he's as corrupt as they come. Young, sort of handsome (altho not to this lady's eye) and so tied in with the Chicago demo corruption that we are doomed to be run by special interests yet again here in IL.

Durbin, who never met a republican that he liked, is due to be re-elected as senator. So I think, by virtue of the fact that we've returned to Al Capone politics and criminality here in IL, WE deserve to be known as the most corrupt state in the Union.

Ah, Broward. Home of more nudie bars, massage parlors, sleazy nightclubs and glorified housing projects known as condos (Cemetary Village anyone?) per capita than anywhere else in the state. Not to mention that most Broward Cops are rejects from New Jersey who fled said state due to corruption investigations.

You forgot to add that Ft. Lauderdale (Broward County) is the home of the Florida Attorney General, Robert Butterworth and two of his most corrupt Florida Assistant Attorney General's Scott Masel (head of the Civil Div.) and Cecile Dykas (head of the Criminal Div.) operating out of the FL. Attorney General's office in Ft. Lauderdale.

I didnt read them all so i dont know if it was already said.

But here in Connecticut we got some very corrupt leaders.

We have a tax and spend liberal for Governor (Rowland), who is actually a big wig in the Republican Party but no one will sponsor him on a national scale cuz and he got arrested for beating his wife a few years ago. When he was elected all the media outlets applied for a freedom of information act on his arrest form, but the Judge denied it. All the people who were involved in the decision to cover it up all got high paying government jobs after that. The fear is that if he gets a national position, that the media will again try to open the case up on him, and it will no longer be possible to cover. (This kind of an Urban Legend i guess, it hasnt been proven false but nobody knows for sure and everyone talks about it.)

He is also squandering all of our taxes away on some Grandiose Shopping Center/Amusement Park called Adrians Landing which is supposed to turn Hartford, probably one of the most run down cities in this country, into some kind of booming metropolis.

The Mayor of Waterbury was arrested for having sexual relations with a 13 year old.

The mayor of Bridgeport is was arrested for various charges, Bribery, Racketeering, Extortion, Wire Fraud, Imbezzlement. He basically looted the town treasury until it became bankrupt.

And the mayor of my town of Rocky Hill, I swear has ties to the Mafia.

And we have Lieberman and Dodd, need i say more?

You guys are lucky cuz you actually have a Republican candidate to vote for. Here in CT, we have only have a Democratic Party, just some of them like to call themselves Republicans.

Don't forget Massport and the subsequent lax security at Logan airport. We all know what that led to...

I'm from New Jersey. Every single person in this state is corrupt. The governor, our senators, the Democrats, the Republicans, the Greens, the Libertarians.

The birds sing stolen songs, the dogs dig up each other's bones, and the infants want hugs so they can lift your wallet.

Down Right Poetic, dead!

Not really fair, since most inhabitants of Broward and Dade counties come from NY, NJ, or other major contenders for the title.

I am pleased to say Florida does not even rank in the top ten in this particular ranking.

See #162.

As I recall 2000, we are so lame in this contest we have to import our corruption in the balance of the state from the top contenders.

Broward and Dade are merely statistical anomalies that could be easily rectified by another Andrew or two.(sick cracker humor)

Let's not forget Palm Beach County, home of Boca Raton, Robert Wexler and my parents (the last being the only decent thing in Palm Beach County).

Don't forget the state of New Jersey paying out 11.2 million dolars to tear down the Kuiser mansion in High Point State Park when it would have taken only 2 million to make it usuable.. then turning around and saying that they needed new office space of the exact same square footage as teh Kuiser mansion.....

OK, I can't stand it. Georgia with only one vote??

The state which is so corrupt it had THREE GOVERNORS at the SAME TIME???

The state which, less than 10 years ago, produced the LARGEST VOTER FRAUD CONSPIRACY CONVICTION in the history of the United States???

The state where it is legal to list "voter haulers" on campaign expense reports???

The state where state legislators buy high-priced condominiums in downtown Atlanta with campaign contributions???

The state where the soon-to-be-former governor was about to enrich many of his closest and wealthiest contributors by running "the Northern Arc" interstae connector through their often recently purchased land???

The state which produced The Federal Reserve System (Jekyll Island)???

The state which had been in complete control of the Dems from 1870 (or so) until this coming January???

Come on. We win, but we're damned sure about to make it better! Finally.

Best regards,
