Just learned that our lovely, gov, Blago, is in the custody of federal agents. ARGH!!! I work for a company that has a contract with the state and it's renegotiation time!

Wellllllll....look at it this way.
At least the State should accept your bid...as is.
I'm from IL too. This is beyond imaginable. Some of the things we've heard on the news is more than my lil pea-brain could ever come up with! :shock:

Yeah, talk about not using your noggin.' The gov had to know he was under investigation. So, when you're under investigation, you try to get bribes for appointing senate replacements??? ARGH!

I think the guy thought he was seriously beyond reproach. Don't know if he's ever read the Rule Book...
Besides...where'd he come from, anyway?? All of a sudden....*there* he was!!

Well, his relatives are part of the machine. I am scared about IL politics going national. We're not known for the cleanest politics, unfortunately.

He's been all over Fox News. Apparently he's come up from the political ranks in that he's not a new comer.

Several commentators refereed to his attitude and comments as sociopathic and from the interviews I've heard, they are on the money.

It also seems that the candidate #5 is Jessie Jackson Jr. - interesting.

Ya know....I would *hate* for it to go National, but nothing else seems to hinder the man. Who in the state can stop him?? Maybe it's time to bring his shennanigans coast to coast, so EVERYone can decide....
