Illinois Governor Tries to Sell Obama's Senate Seat

In a release, Patrick Fitzgerald, the prosecutor, said Mr. Blagojevich "put a for sale sign on the naming of a United States Senator."

Now that's chutzpah.

Oh, he also sold other governmental seats and denied financial aid to the Tribune Company unless they fired editors who had criticized him.

Good gracious Mark, what are you Yankees up to?

That's just how we roll.

Blagojevich (indicted, ROR) used to represent me in Congress, taking over a district formerly run by Dan Rostenkowski (released at 15 months), and then taking over the Governorship from Governor George Ryan (prisoner #16627-424 at Terre Haute FCI until 2013).
