Here is something for Rounds and Daugaard to Hang Their Hat On

I just came across this study in Forbes.  It turns out that South Dakota is the 8th most corrupt state in the US.  A study reported on Fortune places South Dakota behind just seven other states for corruption.  Some of the places that were among the least corruptible include neighbors Minnesota, Iowa, and Nebraska.  Also keep into account that the study was looking at events up too 2008.  Way before the EB-5 scandal and NBP.  I am sure we have moved up on that list.  The biggest issue with this was pointed out in the article when they wrote:
Researchers also found that spending in these states was different than their less corrupt counterparts. According to the report, “states with higher levels of corruption are likely to favor construction, salaries, borrowing, correction, and police protection at the expense of social sectors such as education, health and hospitals.”
I don't know about you, but the favoring of corporations over education and other social sectors sure looks like Daugaard and Rounds' South Dakota.
