The governor of Illinois gets indicted for corruption?
SAY IT AIN'T SO, RICHARD DALEY!!!!!!!!!
Actually this situation involving Rod Blagojevich is insane even by the standards of Illinois political corruption, as he sought to sell everything he could and shake down anyone he could - even a children's hospital - for money. And it involved people such as Tony Rezko, one of Barack Obama's prime financiers (who it would seem helped put Blagojevich in jail) and even The Man On The Way Up himself may have some role with Blagojevich, especially as this October 30, 2008 Chicago Tribune piece notes - also worth checking is this excerpt from Roll Call.
