Ranking states by how corrupt they are

We now have metrics that allow us to determine the most corrupt states in the union, based on the number of public officials that have been convicted of corruption in office.  Can you guess which ones are in the top 10?  Where do you think your state ranks?  The least corrupt state is  Nebraska, providing another reason for why we should move the nation’s capital there.
