Corruption Report Comparisons Differ for Illinois

Chicago Magazine's June 2012 issue compared the findings from a public corruption report from the UIC political science department with the Center for Public Integrity's report card on political corruption. The reports differ drastically on where Illinois ranks nationally - UIC's report ranked Chicago as the most corrupt metro area in the nation and Illnois as the third most corrupt state, while the Center's report ranked Illinois as the tenth least corrupt state.
