The irony is almost too delicious.
Yesterday, Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D-Ill.) visited laid-off workers occupying their former factory, which closed down after Bank of America cut off credit to their employer, Republic Windows & Doors. (By the way, how’s that bail-out working?) Gov. Blagojevich ordered state agencies to stop doing business with B of A until it sends Republic some of the taxpayers’ money in order to keep the factory open and reward the whining protesters.
Today, Gov. Blagojevich and his Chief-of-Staff John Harris were arrested on a breath-taking panorama of corruption charges, which include trying to sell an appointment to Barack Obama’s vacated Senate seat.
