Illinois Governor Rod R. Blagojevich Arrested

It's on Federal Corruption charges.

It's quite juicy because it's all about Obama's Senate seat. Basically Blagojevich wanted something valuable from the Obama people for appointing who they wished to his Senate seat (money or a appointment).

If found guilty and serves time, I believe this would be the 4th Illinois Governor to do so.

Remember that squeaky clean Obama came from this political system.

If you were watching the news yesterday you saw Gov. Blagojevich telling Bank of America that their business was through in his state because it had pulled the line of credit from a Chicago factory that had laid-off workers. Oh, he was so passionate for the people!

I'm betting Bank of America is having a good laugh today.

Notice in the story where Blagojevich is the working man's hero, the fact that he is a Democrat is in the second sentence of the Reuter's story, but in today's story of his arrest, you don't learn he is a Democrat until the very last paragraph of a 2 page story.

Isn't that just the way it always is?

Oh yes, in a FBI recorded conversation the Governor called Obama a "m*therf**ker." You gotta love a man of the people. They are so sincere and honest.

Update: It looks like Gov. Blagojevich's wife Patty is just as classy.
