Oregon receives failing grade in state integrity investigation

320x180_30226P00-SFOFOOre. — Oregon receives an F in state accountability and transparency.

That’s according to the 2015 state integrity investigation by the Center for Public Integrity and Global Integrity.

Oregon earned an overall score of 58, tying it for 44th in the country.

The grading system looks at the systems in place to deter corruption in state government.

Former Governor John Kitzhaber’s resignation gave the state an F in the category of executive accountability.

Neighboring states only fared a bit better, with Washington receiving a D Plus, Idaho a D Minus, and California ranking second with a C Minus.
