Another Crappy Governor
I just saw the following article on Yahoo's website. OH MY GOSH! Granted we did not like Governor Blagojevich....but GOOD GRIEF! It's bad enough that I'm mad at Hawaii's Governor Lingle, But this THIS is outside of ENOUGH! Arrrrghhhhh!
CHICAGO – Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested today on charges that accuse him of trying to benefit from his ability to appoint President-elect Barack Obama's replacement in the U.S. Senate.
The U.S. Attorney in Chicago says federal investigators bugged Blagojevich's campaign offices and placed a tap on his home phone. At a news conference on Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said the corruption charges represent "a truly new low."
An FBI affidavit says the 51-year-old Democrat was intercepted on wiretaps conspiring to sell or trade the vacant Senate seat for personal benefits for himself and his wife.
I move to a state with a childish governor and find that the state I left has an even worse one. Sheesh! My day is not off to a promising start.
I should also mention that our previous Illinois Governor (Ryan)is presently asking for a presidential pardon from President Bush. He's in jail right now on corruption charges. Arrrrghhhhhhhhhh........
