Are you surprised?


1. Georgia
> Overall grade: F (49%)
> Public access to information: F
> Legislative accountability: F
> Political financing: F
> Ethics enforcement agencies: F

Georgia has the worst levels of corruption risk and lack of accountability of any state in the country. The state scored a D or worse in 12 of the 14 categories. The state’s biggest problem is the absence of a strong ethics enforcement agency. Republican governor Sonny Perdue managed to get an ethics bill through the legislature, but by the time it passed, his proposals to ban gifts to state workers and clearly define appropriate campaign spending had been stripped out. According to State Integrity reporter Jim Walls, while Georgia has provisions to prevent certain kinds of corruption in campaign finance and lobbying, the state is full of unaddressed loopholes and lax enforcement. “About 2,000 Georgia officials, including one in five sitting legislators, have failed to pay penalties for filing their disclosures late, or not at all.”

I see Georgia came in at #1.
But this is the horse we've been given to ride into battle and the war is coming whether you'd wish it or not. Its up to you whether or not you cede the battlefield uncontested or fight to the very last. If you are out there working to get Hillary Clinton elected you are no longer representing or supporting conservatism. You are forming a fifth column offensive against the very principles you claim to support.   Jazz Shaw

I tell all the folks who have the NEVER TRUMP sign, they need to replace it with a NEVER HILLARY sign, said the former House speaker. Newt
