There have been 5 governors from Chicago indicted, 4 convicted. George Ryan, Governor from 1999 to 2003 is scheduled for release in 2013, maybe he can share a cell?

This doesn't even include all the other government officals, you can't constantly expect the FBI to fix all your corruption.

Another crooked Illinois Democrat? Not surprising in the least. I hope Obama gets more than 14 years when he's convicted.

Ryan was a republican, you are confusing party affiliation with corruption.

Yawn......study the subject before posting or at least have the courtesy of knowing the background if you don't mind...it makes your posts more enjoyable for others.

repubs and dems BOTH in IL are crooked.

Think about it like this...IL politicians are as crooked as Texas politicians are dumb(Barring Ann Richards)...does that help you?

They shouldn't be able to prosecute him again. I understand this is how our legal system works, but that doesn't mean its right.


Didn't he appeal the first one?
