Illinois Governor Arrested

Only in Illinois, does your governor try to sell a Senate seat. What makes this all the more crazy is that he already was being investigated for other pay-to-play schemes, so how stupid do you have to be?  According to the statement from the FBI, Blagojevich is alleged to have discussed obtaining:

  • a substantial salary for himself at either a non-profit foundation or an organization affiliated with labor unions;
  • a spot for his wife on paid corporate boards, where he speculated she might garner as much as $150,000 a year;
  • promises of campaign funds — including cash up front;
  • a Cabinet post or ambassadorship for himself.
  • We will have to see how this plays out, but in the meantime, who is in charge of Illinois?
