Illinois Democratic Governor Rod Blagojevich was arrested today on corruption charges with allegations that he placed President-Elect Obama's recently vacated Senate seat up for sale to the highest bidder, with the governor reaping the benefit!
Court authorized wire taps caught the governor making deals ranging from selling the Senate seat to withholding state assistance in the purchase of Wrigley Field in order for a Tribune executive, who was critical of the governor, to be fired. Read about it here.
I hate politics. I hate corruption. I really hate corrupt politicians!
