The 75-page indictment alleges Blagojevich was at the center of a conspiracy to seek cash, campaign contributions and jobs for himself and others in exchange for state appointments, state business, legislation and pension fund investments.

Comcast.net: Former Illinois Governor Blagojevich indicted (http://www.comcast.net/articles/news-general/20090402/NEWS-US-BLAGOJEVICH/ - broken link)

What took them so long?

YAY!!!! May justice be served properly, and may public servants be clear about their duty.

And I'd like to add, that those who accuse Obama of being a politics as usual gangster... for some odd reason since he's been in office lots and lots of riff raff are finding their way to the door.

COINCIDENCE???

Good riddens! Blago was one of the few politicians who made me angry enough to write to tell him exactly how worthless he was (Bush was another), and this was well before his arrest.

Chicago will probably throw a party when he goes to jail.

Totally.
To imply Obama had anything to do with aiding Blago's indictment or anyone else's is disingenuous at best.
As has been said before, Obama must have been one of the blindest politicians to come out of Illinois.
How else can one explain being surrounded by such obvious corruption and claiming to have never seen a thing?

Blago: "I've got this thing.....it's golden...and i'm not giving it up for nothing".

Blago's Future Cell Mate: "I'll trade you a cigarette for a piece of gold pretty boy"

Ally- Disingenuous? Thank you for the confession.

Should you have a question, I suggest you ask politely if you mean to be answered. Or you can do your homework, because my posts are free for anyone to read and find out who/ what/ where blah blah.

Entitlement brats hither one way with wild assumptions, then dither the other way demanding resumes to justify existence. I don't welcome folks who are impressed by either into my life.

Sorry, I'm not as impressed with you as you seem to be.
To reiterate, Blago has been indicted and Obama had nothing whatsoever to do with it, despite your implication to the contrary.
In the future, please try to remain on topic.

Are you on topic since you're fixated on a blogger, and not the actual topic? Sounds like a personal problem.

You might find it easier to get back on topic by actually talking about the topic rather than make childish demands. TOS becomes an issue.
