Ethics and Accountability in Texas

KTBS-TV  reports on how Texas fared in a recent study of ethics and accountability.
When it comes to integrity and ethics, Texas passes, but just barely. According to a new study, the Lone Star state earned the low grade of D-plus for accountability in state government. 
"I'm not surprised, I'm not shocked at all," said Israel Nandamudi, a Political Science professor at East Texas Baptist University. "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. So even if you elect the so called good people, once they taste blood, once they see a loophole they just want to take it. It's a character issue."
