William Compton, Jr. says corruption is the number one problem facing Mississippi. He says he believes the Department of Revenue is underfunded and is not equipped to bring in the amount of revenue the state should be recouping.

The Democratic candidate says he would like to see the code of ethics for lawyers become law and enforced rigorously. 

Compton also proposes decriminalizing certain drug offenses and pardoning people who are in jail for drugs.
