When I woke up Tuesday, I saw the headline "Ill Gov taken into Custody". I got a warm feeling because I thought, "Wow, people do care"
Ok, Dumb joke. USA Today had a dipshit article yesterday, claiming Illinois was #2 in the competition for most corrupt state in the union. Their call was North Dakota was number one for corruption. Why? I don't know. Why compete for that trophy? I don't know.
I live in Illinois and it's mostly a shithole... at least where i'm at.Talking about this to other locals, most peeps say, "It's about time he got busted". But all i hear are rumors.
Well, except for the Tuesday newcasts... ABC (I think) had a clip of him saying on MONDAY (paraphrase) ' I haven't anything to hide, if you want, bug my house' Which the Feds have been doing, since late October...
Prolly why he was taken into custody at about 530 am Tuesday....
He wants to make money... how much? He wanted a 150,000 dollar a year job for his wife. He wanted a job from a "Non-profit organization(?????)", or a Union, or an Ambasadorship, or a position in the Cabinet.
How much do these positions pay? I would kinda think a bit more than $150,000/year. Maybe.
Then there's the selling of the Senate Seat
Then there's the pressure on the Chicago Tribune.
Fuck it! Blagojevich fucked many a people. Let me, as a singular form people, describe a punishment that I see fitting.
1.He should serve time
2. He should buy everyone who is homeless in illinois a pizza, out of his own pocket.
3. He should let me confiscate any and all nude pictures of his wife.
I'll stop for now, because I'm starting to get a "Torture a corrupt politian Boner like I haven't felt in 8 years"

|Big Papa Goat||Ya, but this guy sounds like the kind of guy that calls everybody a motherfucker. Even as someone who is completly vulgar, and who has a pretty good idea of how full of shit politicians are in public, finding out about how a politician uses language like this is still kind of shocking to me. It just seems so wrong, almost as bad as the actual corruption, even though it totally isn't. Weird.|

|Evil Robot||This reminds me of that "Sin CIty" movie with all those creeps in power and the one guy who ate people and the other that raped little girls. The FBI needs to visit the hard drives of his family members. I bet his cousin is in NAMBLA.|

GOVERNORS DEMAND FEDERAL LEADERSHIP ON SUBPRIME MORTGAGE CRISIS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 24, 2008
Governors Meet in Washington, Voice Need for Stronger Plan to Protect Homeowners
Governor Eliot Spitzer today joined Governors from across the United States in calling on the Bush Administration to deliver a comprehensive solution to the ongoing mortgage crisis. As more Americans lose their homes, the Governors have taken aggressive actions and stand ready to partner with the federal government to deliver critical relief to homeowners in need.
Illinois Governor Rod R. Blagojevich said: "The crisis in the sub-prime mortgage market has had a devastating impact on homeowners and entire communities across our country. In Illinois alone, it is possible that up to 70,000 homeowners will face foreclosure this year. A real solution will require lenders, consumers, advocates and public policy makers to all work together. Last week in Illinois, we announced a package that will do just that. I am confident that by making good loans and sound advice available to families in Illinois and throughout the country, we can turn the mortgage crisis around and save homeowners from foreclosure."
Bank of America Broker Indicted by New York Attorney General for Grand Larceny.
Date: Tuesday, April 6 2004
Apr. 6--New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer moved against one of the first people named in the growing mutual fund trading scandal yesterday with the indictment of a Bank of America broker on 40 counts that include grand larceny and falsifying business records.
Illinois Governor Halts Business With Bank of America
Dec. 8, 2008 (Bloomberg) -- Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich said the state will suspend business with Bank of America Corp. until the lender restores credit to the shuttered Republic Windows & Doors company in Chicago where workers are staging a sit-in.
Why didn't the article in jeanette's post make any mentioning of blagojevich's announcement of business suspension with BoA? This reeks of censorship.

|Big Papa Goat||Hell, who knows, maybe instead of calling Obama a Muslim to make people think they couldn't trust him they should have just pointed out that he's from Illinois. Seems that it ought to be a pretty damning characterization.|

|Dec 10th, 2008 11:58 PM|
Yeah, I couldn't believe it. Actually, I could.
Oh, and on the other forums, idiots are now trying to use this as some proof that Obama's corrupt and want to get him impeached for it. These same people were/still are insisting that he's not a US citizen.
People these days...

|Tadao||I hate the Jackson family so much. Jesse Sr. is such a hypocrite. I have no reason to believe his son didn't try to buy himself a seat. I'm listening to him talk right now, and he is yelling at me for suspecting him of wrong doing? Fuck him.|
|Dec 10th, 2008 05:20 PM|
|Dr. Boogie||Eh, that was just Chicago that made that. This feels more state-wide.|
|Dec 10th, 2008 04:40 PM|
|Tadao||And deep dish pizza.|
|Dec 10th, 2008 04:33 PM|
Hey, this is great. My home state finally has something to brag about.
Number 1 in corruption, baby! Yeah!

|Asila||They were doing an interview with some Illinois residents and one of them commented that they'd have to build a gubernatorial wing on the state penitentiary. And then he laughed hollowly.|

|Tadao||Hahahaha Jesse Jackson Jr. is #5. I fucking hate the Jackson family.|

Illinois is completly fucked.
