Oregon received failing marks for its integrity, based on the laws and systems they have in place to deter corruption, from the Center for Public Integrity in their 2015 State Integrity Investigation.
The study examined a state's integrity across 13 methods in order to determine a state’s ranking. Oregon finished with a grade of “F”, 44th out of the 50 states reviewed in the study.
This comes as no surprise; Portland/Willamette Valley Democratics continue their decades-long process of leading the state to the bottom of the pack by every measure: we're at the bottom in high school graduation, at the bottom in readiness for college among those who do graduate, and much more:
The state was scored at an “F” for Public Access to Information, Political Financing, Executive Accountability, Judicial Accountability, Procurement, Lobbying Disclosure, Ethics Enforcement Agencies and State Pension Fund Management.
We're the Illinois of the west. Lucky us! Hey, Florida got a D-, so they nearly caught us.
