Worst Governors List: Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics
Worst United States Governors: Liberal Watchdog Group Puts 11 U.S. Governors On List - Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, David Paterson, Mark Sanford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and more...
The watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has released a list of the Worst Governors in the USA.
The organization determines the list by looking at the track record and performance of the 50 U.S. Governors.
We considered whether governors had violated ethics, campaign finance and personal financial disclosure rules as well as whether they had complied with state transparency laws. It is nearly impossible to compare governors’ adherence to the laws because state rules and laws vary so widely....
...Despite these difficulties, CREW was been able to reach some general conclusions about which governors violated agreed upon notions of competence, transparency and integrity.
Nine out of Eleven of the worst Governors according to CREW are Republicans, with two Democratic Governors making the worst governors list.
