Bay State’s Public Integrity? We’re Number Ten!

The Center for Public Integrity has released its State Integrity 2015 scorecard (tip o’ the pixel to AlterNet), “a comprehensive assessment of state government accountability and transparency done in partnership with Global Integrity.”

Sad to say, Massachusetts barely passes.

(Shoutout to BU’s New England Center for Investigative Reporting stalwarts Maggie Mulvihill and Beverly Ford, who provided stats for the scorecard.)

You can play with the Massachusetts numbers here.

Silver lining: Only three states received an overall grade higher than D+: Alaska, California, and Connecticut.

Cold comfort for Bay Staters, yeah?
