    Since Blagojevich is found Guilty will it effect Sparta if the State is Loosing a Million a year there. Fox News reports they are closing the race track he had built. Allen

    He was only referring to Daly, Ryan and Obama; not everyone from Ill.

    Forget that POS, the real issue here is Sparta. That TEE-VEE hit piece never mentions the money brought into the Sparta area by the shooting competitors. It's losing money because it's being run by the Government. Let them lease it to the boys that run the PSSA for $1.00 a year; thus saving IL taxpayers $1,000,001 per, and I bet Chuck and his team could turn a profit, plus plow a ton of money into the youth programs like they're doing up at Elysburg.

    Don't be surprised if there isn't a presidential pardon for Blago when the Lord God and King Barack Obama leaves the Oval office.

    By Chicago politician standards, Blago is merely an average criminal.

    SirMissalott:

    Below is part of a post I wrote on a thread titled, "What's Wrong With Illinois" back in January. It answers your question.

    ___________________


    Illinois has convicted four former governors. Three of the four were dems.

    Rod Blagojevich (D) 2010
    (Update: 17 additional counts on 6-27-11)

    George Ryan (R) was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in 2006. Ryan is a current resident of the graybar motel.

    Dan Walker (D) 1987

    Otto Kerner (D) 1973

    Go back to the 1920's and Lennington Small, a Republican, was indicted in office for embezzlement committed as state treasurer. He was acquitted. It was later reported that several of the jurors serving on his case ended up with state jobs.

    If we expand beyond governors, Paul Powell (D) gets a dishonorable mention. A former Speaker of the Illinois House he died in 1970 while serving as Sec. of State. Powell never made more than $30,000 a year, but after he died, more than $800,000 in cash was found stashed in his Springfield residence. His estate was worth $4.6 million, of which $1 million was racetrack stock.

    Chicago crook Dan Rostenkowski (D), is another special mention. The son of a city alderman and product of the Crook County machine, Rosty served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1959 to 1995. (Can you say term limits??) That included time as chairman of the Ways and Means committee. Like Al Capone, Rosty was convicted of a mickey mouse charge instead of the huge resume of felonies he was actually guilty of.
