No More Felons
Of course, that doesn't mean that Blago is going to get rid of the one felon that he knows he has - that might irritate political sponsors:
- A spokeswoman says Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's staff doesn't contain any more convicted felons.
Last week the Chicago Sun-Times disclosed that a high-ranking Blagojevich aide named Steven Guerra spent 23 months in prison in the mid-1980s. Guerra had refused to testify before a grand jury about terrorist activities by the Puerto Rican independence movement known as FALN.
Blagojevich defends the decision to make Guerra his chief of staff for community services.
Remember, we lost a Superintendent because he was associating with a known felon. In the political realm, we guess it all just depends on who's doing the associating and whether of not the political sponsor of said felon is actually running the show.
