Harvard survey: Georgia among most corrupt

December 11, 2014 --

Dec. 11, 2014 — Georgia is regarded as one of the most corrupt states across all branches of government, according to a new survey by Harvard University.

We didn’t rank number one, though. (Thank God for Arizona and Kentucky.)

Respondents said illegal corruption is moderately to very common in Georgia’s executive branch and moderately common in its Legislature, a report from Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics found.

The State Ethics Commission ruled today that political campaigns may not give unlimited amounts of donations to other campaigns, reversing a position it took just two weeks ago. On Aug. 17, the commission dismissed a complaint over a $10,000 contribution to Warner Robins mayoral candidate Chuck Chalk late last year, holding that state law might exempt political candidates from contribution limits. But the commission said today that other language in the statute caps those types of donations.
