How corrupt to you think New Jersey is? The term corruption is thrown around often in the Garden State. Because of that, I was surprised when I saw this Business Insider article, stating that New Jersey only ranks 9th in a list of the most corrupt states in America.

Here is the top 10:

  1. Louisiana
  2. North Dakota
  3. South Dakota
  4. Kentucky
  5. Alaska
  6. Montana
  7. Mississippi
  8. Alabama
  9. New Jersey
  10. Virginia
