U.S. Senate Seat for Sale

Illinois Dem. Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris were arrested this morning by agents of the FBI on allegations of trying to sell Obama's vacant Senate. See the details here.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald describes the nature and the details of the complaint against the Governor in this video;



I would not have believed that any Governor, Republican or Democrat, could be this stupid, this arrogant, and this corrupt. Unbelievable! Bribery, extortion, abuse of power; this story has everything. Kind of reminds me of the Clinton administration. How many heads will roll over this? Will the Governor resign or be impeached? Who is Senate Candidate number 5? This is really going to be interesting.
