    Front page of Yahoo Blago gets 14 years in jail. Rat Bastard should have gotten more. Well Illinois had the dubious honor of having two Govenors in jail at the same time.

    Bruce -

    Not to hijack your thread, but since we are talking about going to jail . . . how did you make out on that red-light ticket you were fighting?

    Less than a year per count. Zagel must have thought going easy wouldn't bring an appeal. Yeah, sure.

    My favorite sentence from the Tribune article:

    "Blagojevich said he thought he was acting in accord with the law when he did things for which he later was convicted."

    I doubt he will serve the whole sentence, but you never know.

    Club Fed does not offer parole, just credit for days served.

    Crooked politicians actually going to jail?! It's like a warm, wonderful dream!

    How about Tax-Cheat Tim Geithner next?

    A real shame Blago can't go to one of the state prisons he tried to close in his last months as Gov., I'm sure the guards would have had a good time with him.

    Wanna bet whether Obama pardons him after the election?

    If Obama gets reelected, watch this scum get pardoned on Nov 7, 2012.

    I think a greater danger of a Nov. 2012 pardon would be if Obummer ISN'T reelected.

    Obama lied when he told the media that he had never met Blago but only saw him at a sporting event once. Look at the aforeposted photo above. There are several different photos showing them talking together. Lying bastard.

    Fox News said today that because his is a federal felony conviction the minimum he will have to serve is 12 years. Good riddance.

    Blago is the designated "FALL GUY" he would have squealed like a stuck pig otherwise. Rahm Emanuel is in charge of Chicago now. Blagojevich and his family will be taken care of financially for life."The Liar In Chief" - Barak HUSSIEN Obama will pardon him. Chicago Politics as usual.
