If you thought US Congress was out of control, then think again. A new survey reveals corruption at the state and local level. The Center for Public Integrity has measured hundreds of variables to compile transparency and accountability grades for all 50 states.

The group issued the best grade in the nation to Alaska and it is just a C. Two others earned better than a D+ and 11 states got an F.

These results may be deflating to the two-thirds of Americans who look to the states for policy solutions as gridlock has overtaken the federal government.
