Illinois edges Jersey for top honors

While your blogstress's heart is in Jersey City, she does have familial ties to Chicago's South Side, so the pronouncement of one G-man on the comparative status of the Land of Lincoln was less painful, perhaps, than it was for her fellow dwellers of the Meadowlands:

Robert Grant, FBI special agent in charge of the Chicago office, said even the most cynical FBI agents were "disgusted and revolted" by what they heard on the recordings [of Gov. Rod Blogojevich trying to sell a Senate seat].

"If it isn’t the most corrupt state in the United States," Grant said of Illinois, "it’s certainly one hell of a competitor."
C'mon Jersey! You're slippin'!
