Illinois Gov arrested

December 9, 2008 at 8:02 PM

I have lived in Illinois for 38 years, ten of which were spent in the capital city of Springfield. So, it wasn't any surprise to me that Governor Rod Blagojevich was arrested today on corruption charges.

At first, when I heard the news I was excited, happy; finally they are doing something that should have been done years ago.

Now that I live in Indiana, I can really feel for the state of Illinios; going through another government that is full of corruption while still living through the previous 8 years with Gov. Ryan.

You can read the article yourself... sorry about being political.

IMHO the state of Illinois got an early Christmas present... however they still have the credit card bill to deal with :(

 Let's hope that Hope and Change isn't too close to this little explosion

I think someone either informed him or he just had the common sense not to be associated with him. Believe me, you can feel something isn't right really far away from this guy.

Don't apologize for being political -- and ethical, too.  I'm always amazed at how low politicians can sink.
