Despite Chicago's political machine reputation and current scandal over Governor Blagojevich's attempt to sell Obama's senate seat; the "Land of Lincoln" still isn't considered America's most corrupt state. This honor, according to "USA Today" goes to--North Dakota. (Huh?).
I guess we shouldn't be too surprised. Some "Bison Chips" are bound to get filtered into the political meat-grinding process. Especially within a capital city named after Germany's "Iron Chancellor"--Otto von Bismark.
