It’s been a wild news cycle for the State of Illinois today.  Governor Rod Blagojevich and his Chief of Staff, John Harris, were arrested on corruption charges today by FBI Agents.  Now that’s something you don’t see every day…  Apparently the Governor and his Chief of Staff felt the empty Senate Seat was worth something more than good will.  They weren’t too worried about qualified or serving anyone’s interests but their own.  They wanted cash, jobs, and jobs for their wives. 

Apparently the Gov has been under investigation for quite some time now.  He was released today on $4,500 bail, which to me seems kind of weak!

Interesting tid bit…Illinois last governor is in the slammer for corruption charges.
