Alabama is number 1 in political corruption. This is costing every citizen in the state, however most are blind or indifferent to the loss of tax dollars associated with political corruption. Many citizens resist any new taxes for education or infrastructure, claiming to be fiscally conservative or being fiscally responsible, all the while being robbed by elected officials.

Why is Alabama so corrupt? What are the guardrails that Alabama has in place to keep political corruption in check?

One main reason Alabama is first in political corruption is its passion to vote straight ticket. In the last general election 65% of republicans voted straight ticket, that keeps the most corrupt in office.

What are the guardrails for corruption in Alabama? The Alabama Attorney General and the Ethics commission?
