    I wonder how much he was charging for Obama's senate seat? Must have been more than Jessee Jackson, Jr. was willing to pay.

    Like I said a year ago, he WILL be licking george ryans toes in a cell, and the sooner the better.

    Also the indictment said he was talking to "senate candidate #5" about cash for an appointment, so maybe Patrick Fitzgerald can really spread this love around to include many more.

    Folks,

    I have yet to speak to a fellow "Illinoisan" who is not COMPLETELY thrilled and ecstatic about this happening. Especially those working for the state who have been literally stripped of money by Rocket Rod and Evil Emil so that money could be redirected to Chicago State, Emil Jones favorite school.

    I hope he does NOT share a cell with Ryan, but instead with a couple of street hood, drug lords with an ax to grind.

    I just saw Rod on the boob tube last night calling B of A all sorts of names -- now he's in the slammer. This day is starting out well.

    The above link is to the copy of the paragraphs in the criminal complaint. The corruption is staggering! What a clown! And he still thinks he can be president in 2012!

    For those so inclined, the Chicago Sun-Times has a link to the entire 78 page indictment. There's simply no end to the sh!t he pulled and was conspiring to pull.

    While the Alfred E. Newman lookalike (Blagojevich) was the felonious b@stard in charge, he was assisted by a cast of thousands. It is my fervent hope that when the legal process is finished, every one of those nefarious f***ers get their @sses handed back on a plate.

    Indignantly yours,

    downstate sissy

    I did not vote for Rod. LOL

    What Illinois needs is a 3rd Party, the other two have not shown much too us the last few years.

    Obama is the only clean politician to come out of Chicago politics. Good for us.
