Democrat Governor of Illinois (and Friend of Obama) Arrested on Federal Corruption Charges

Since the MSM often doesn't like to include the tag Democrat in their headlines when Dem politicos go wrong, I thought I'd do it for them. Here's the scoop:

Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested by FBI agents on federal corruption charges Tuesday morning.

Blagojevich and Harris were arrested simultaneously at their homes at about 6:15 a.m., according to Frank Bochte of the FBI. Both were transported to FBI headquarters in Chicago.

In one charge related to the appointment of a senator to replace Barack Obama, prosecutors allege that Blagojevich sought appointment for himseld as Secretary of Health and Human Services in the new Obama administration, or a lucrative job with a union, in exchange for appointing a union-preferred candidate.

Another charge alleges Blagojevich and Harris conspired to demand the firing of Chicago Tribune editorial board members responsible for editorials critical of him in exchange for state help with the sale of Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs baseball stadium owned by Tribune Co.

Read more at the Chicago Tribune.

So, when will Obama throw pal Blagojevich under the bus with the rest of his inconvenient cronies?

Merry Fitzmas, everyone!


He's not the Rod Blagojevich I knew...

And if you are going to read ANYTHING at the Trib, you better hurry, because their stock is worth a WHOLE five cents today. Awesome.

Probably not a good buy - even at that price!
