Does Virginia have a culture of openness?

Virginia received an "F" from the State Integrity Investigation for their susceptibility to corruption. The study, conducted by the Center for Public Integrity, looked at the existence and implementation of several laws, including Virginia's FOIA, which in itself received an F. In a column, I argue that things aren't quite as dire as they sound; the overall culture of openness in the Commonwealth is fairly good. Or is it?
