by AP posted Mar 19 2012 7:49AM
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A new report suggests Virginia is at high risk for government corruption. 
 
Virginia received an "F" in the State Integrity Investigation released Monday, ranking it 47th among all states. 
 
The project assessed government accountability and efforts to deter corruption and self-dealing. The nonpartisan Center for Public Integrity, Public Radio International and the nonprofit group Global Integrity conducted the assessment over several months. 
 
Virginia scored "A" grades for internal auditing and procurement. It received failing grades for the accountability of each of the three government branches, public access to information, political financing, lobbying disclosure, ethics enforcement and state budget processes.  
 
North Dakota, Michigan, South Carolina, Maine, Wyoming, South Dakota and Georgia also received "F" grades. Five states received a "B." No state got an "A."
