    I would like to hear all of the tapes. I learned a long time ago that just because some men from the goberment want to make some news only to become a high profile attorney later after making a name for themselves taking down some big fish with media frenzy and some foul language. {have you ever listened to some judges,cops and lawyers talk when the "public" is not listening?]

    We will see how the federal trial plays out, I have my doubts on the strength of Fitzgeralds case, he reminds me of Spitzer.

    Politicos play the favors game for almost every big deal made and always have.

    I'm not trying to defend the smuck but I do believe in Inocent until proven guilty in a court of law. If you think everyone serving time is a criminal you are misguided.

    Did anyone ever wonder who the gov was going to sell seat vacated by Obamma to?
    The tribune broke the story and also have a one hundred million dollar tax break comming.The federal attorney broke the case very early to protect other people from being heard on the tapes..If Resko and Blago ever told all they know a lot of Illinois politicians would be in Jail..And Osamma Obamma was part of the resko mess..Balgo"s wife brokered a deal for his house in Chicago..There are all part of the Birds of the feather flock together
    We are just paving the way for the house speaker Madigan to get his Daughter Lisa in to being Govenor..Resko went to jail early before the sentencing so they wouldn't kill him..Accidents happen in Chicago..Just ask the Clintoons..Kennedys??

    Teddy Kennedy
    The Last of The Kennedy Dynasty

    As soon as cancer was found, I noticed the immediate attempt at canonization of old Teddy by the main stream media. They are saying what a "great American" he is. Just watch & see . . . When this drunken sot finally does lay down and die, the press will make such a big deal of it, that one might think that he was like a Mother Teresa. I say, let's get a couple things clear and not twist the facts to change the real history.

    1. He was caught cheating at Harvard when he attended it. He was expelled twice, once for cheating on a test, and once for paying a classmate to cheat for him.

    2. While expelled, Kennedy enlisted in the Army, but mistakenly signed up for four years instead of two. Oops, the man can't count to four. His father, Joseph P. Kennedy, former U.S. Ambassador to England (a step up from bootlegging liquor into the US from Canada during prohibition), pulled the necessary strings to have his enlistment shortened to two years, and to ensure that he served in Europe, not Korea, where a war was raging. No preferential treatment for him like *he* charged President Bush received.

    3. Kennedy was assigned to Paris , never advanced beyond the rank of Private, and returned to Harvard upon being discharged. Imagine a person of his "education" NEVER advancing past the rank of Private.

    4. While attending law school at the University of Virginia , he was cited for reckless driving four times, including once when he was clocked driving 90 miles per hour in a residential neighborhood with his headlights off after dark. Yet his Virginia driver's license was never revoked. Coincidentally, he passed the bar exam in 1959. Amazing!!!

    5. In 1964, he was seriously injured in a plane crash and hospitalized for several months. Test results done by the hospital at the time he was admitted had shown he was legally intoxicated. The results of those tests remained a "state secret" until in the 1980's when the report was unsealed. Didn't hear about that from the unbiased media, did we?

    6. On July 19, 1969, Kennedy attended a party on Chappaquiddick Island in Massachusetts . At about 11:00 PM, he borrowed his chauffeur's keys to his Oldsmobile limousine and offered to give a ride home to Mary Jo Kopechne, a campaign worker. Leaving the island via an unlit bridge with no guard rail, Kennedy steered the car off the bridge, flipped, and into Poucha Pond.

    7. He swam to shore and walked back to the party, after passing several houses and a fire station. Then two friends returned with him to the scene of the accident. According to their later testimony, they told him what he already knew, that he was required by law to immediately report the accident to the authorities. Instead Kennedy made his way to his hotel, called his lawyer, and went to sleep. Kennedy called the police the next morning and by then the wreck had already been discovered. Before dying, Kopechne had scratched at the upholstered floor above her head in the upside-down car.

    The Kennedy family began "calling in favors", ensuring that any inquiry would be contained. Her corpse was whisked out-of-state to her family, before an autopsy could be conducted. Further details are uncertain, but after the accident Kennedy says he repeatedly dove under the water trying to rescue Kopechne, and he didn't call police because he was in a state of shock. It is widely assumed Kennedy was drunk, and he held off calling police in hopes that his family could fix the problem overnight.

    Since the accident, Kennedy's "political enemies" have referred to him as the distinguished Senator from Chappaquiddick. He pled guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, and was given a SUSPENDED SENTENCE OF TWO MONTHS. Kopechne's family received a small payout from the Kennedy's insurance policy, and never sued. There was later an effort to have her body exhumed and autopsied, but her family successfully fought against this in court, and Kennedy's family paid their attorney's bills... a "token of friendship"?

    8. Kennedy has held his Senate seat for more than forty years, but considering his longevity, his accomplishments seem scant. He authored or argued for legislation that ensured a variety of civil rights, increased the minimum wage in 1981, made access to health care easier for the indigent, and funded Meals on Wheels for fixed-income seniors and is widely held as the "standard-bearer for liberalism". In his very first Senate roll, he was the floor manager for the bill that turned U.S. immigration policy upside down and opened the floodgate for immigrants from third world countries.

    9. Since that time, he has been the prime instigator and author of every expansion of and increase in immigration, up to and including the latest attempt to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. Not to mention the pious grilling he gave the last two Supreme Court nominees, as if he were the standard bearer for the nation in matters of right. What a pompous ass!

    10. He is known around Washington as a public drunk, loud, boisterous and very disrespectful to ladies. JERK is a better description than "great American".

    Let's not allow the spin doctors make this jerk a hero. How quickly the American public forgets what his real legacy is.

    As I watched the vote last night, I wonder how many of those voting for impeachment are without sin; it's their system in Illinois. When are the honest people going to demand better? Darrell

    Blago can't hold State Offices but can run for Federal Offices, this ought to be a good one ... He'll probably end up being a Judge on the Supreme Court ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I figured since only 35 of the 59 entered into the debate/deliberation phase with speeches, there must have been several nervous people in that chamber. On the other hand, Delgado from Chicago used his 5 minutes to talk about nothing so I guess he's in the ? bunch too. It was really interesting to watch.
