In the land of the Republican Lincoln, Democrat corruption runs wide and deep. It’s not even a well kept secret. Richard Daly Sr, honed the Chicago Democrat machine into a disciplined army of corruptocrats. I don’t think there has ever been a time in Chicago’s history that corruption wasn’t a huge part of city politics.
So today, it was no surprise that Governor Rod Blagojevich, who’s been under investigation for the last three years, suddenly had to clear his gubernatorial calender to spend some quality time with his defense attorney. The only surprise here was the suddenness of his arrest. Absent was the usual announcement that charges were filed and allowing him to turn himself in or negotiate his surrender. They just flat out arrested him.
