Bye Bye Blago

The Illinois legislature impeached their Governor, Rod Blagojevich. today.

So Illinois needs a new Governor.

Just what did Blagojevich do? He wasn't convicted of any crime.
Hell, he wasn't even charged with any crime. The federal prosecutor held a press conference. Period. No charges were ever filed.

Was Blagojevich trying to sell the vacated Senate seat? IMHO, ya, he most likely was.
That and $5 will get you an over roasted latte at Starbucks, but it won't hold up in court of law.

The real crime Blagojevich committed was getting caught, which is inexcusable in the corrupt democrat Chicago political machine. So the same corrupt democrat Chicago political machine used the state legislature to remove him from office.

Will Fitzgerald ever file charges? I wonder if he ever will now. If this ever gets to an actual court of law, Blagojevich will certainly try to put member of our Dear Leaders inner circle, including his Chief of Staff, on the stand. Any member of the federal Justice Department who allowed that to happen would quickly find out that it was a serious CLM (Career Limiting Move).

The next question is if Blagojevich will try to take anybody down with him, or hope that if he keeps his mouth shut, he end up with some well paying "consultant" job once things cool down.
