Hey good news Washingtonians; you’re not easily corruptible. This isn’t specifically transportation related but I thought it was intersting that two watch dog organizations recently named Washington among the least “corruptible” states in the nation.
The Center for Public Integrity and Global Integrity joined with Public Radio International and journalists around the country to score the states on questions involving a wide array of government activities. While we didn’t get an A, our state was graded pretty high for the way it handles political redistricting, internal audits of state government and disclosure of lobbyists’ pay and spending.
We also had a couple areas we didn’t score high in though. The Spokesman-Review has our overall score, and the details.
