Study: AL, GA earn low grades in political accountability

(WTVM) -

Both Georgia and Alabama get low grades when it comes to political accountability and transparency, according to a new study by the Center for Public Integrity.

Georgia earned a D minus from the group, ranking it 24th out of 50 states.

The study gave the state a failing grade in multiple areas, including executive accountability and lobbying disclosure.

Meanwhile, Alabama earned a D plus, which was actually good for 7th in the nation.

The state was given an "F" in both public access to information and political financing.
