One website is criticizing Virginia’s Governor Bob McDonnell, calling him one of the worst governors in America.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) posted the list on CitizensForEthics.org, and ranked Gov. McDonnell as the third worst governor in the country.

CREW specifically cites a federal investigation into a possible gifts scandal between the governor and Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams, known as Giftgate. They say McDonnell abused his office in return for gifts and campaign contributions.

The site says they took into account several factors in the ranking, including corruption, transparency, self-enrichment, partisan politics, and scandal.
