It looks like Blagojevich will become the latest in a long line of corrupt politicians from Illinois. Its quite ironic, considering he obtained the office by replacing another corrupt Governor.
I find it really amusing that people are already attempting to tie Obama to this scandal. I don’t think most people realize how stupid they look when they try to do character assassination by association, especially in this particular case. Here is my favorite quote from the legal complaint.
“Later in the conversation, ROD BLAGOJEVICH said he knows
that the President-elect wants Senate Candidate 1 for the Senate seat but “they’re not willing to give me anything except appreciation. Fuck them.” “
Its right in the 78 page legal complaint, but people today can’t be bothered with reading boring legal documents.
I’m sure the partisans on the right will paint Blagojevich as Obama’s BFF. Hmm, how did that work out with Resko and William Ayers?
The American people are not as dumb as some people think they are..
