A story featured in Governing Magazine that connects public corruption convictions with budget spending claims that States with higher levels of corruption, like Louisiana, tend to spend more money on construction, highways and police protection rather than health, education and welfare.

According to The Times Picayune, the controversial report features Louisiana in the list of the most corrupt states, along with Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Illinois, South Dakota and Alaska.

The findings are based on public corruption convictions from 1978-2008.
