Blago Arrested?

Is it true? We'll see what details emerge as the day progresses.

UPDATE: And his chief of staff. And we have a wide range of topics, from dealings concerning Wrigley Field to who gets Obama's Senate seat.

And for those of you who want to speak about being innocent until proven guilty, just take off the blinders now. Because everyone knows the Feds don't come out with stuff like this unless they've got a 99.99% slam-dunk case.

This is off topic, but speaking of integrity and compassion, I would like to inform everybody that on Saturdday, 06 December Sgt Gina Dwyer suufered a serious heart attack. Gina has spent her entire career as a role model both on and off duty. Not only is she the standard for female officers, but all officers to aspire to. She spent many years working tact, has been a tact sgt, and never asked anyone to do anything she wouldn't do herself. Gina has ran benefits like she is a corperate CEO, and made the CPD the largest group represented in Washington DC at Police Week. Gina is the ultimate hockey mom to her boys and a friend, sister, boss to the rest of us. Please keep her in your prayers. She is at Little Company of Mary Hospital. (SCC please make sure that this where it can be read)

AMEN to that!

I respectfully ask that others who read this blog do the same - she needs all the help she can get.

Is it too much to expect Honesty, and Integrity and an true desire to serve the public from and elected official?

I suspect that this a few elected officials quaking in their shoes. Maybe not Daley cause he is a sociopath who believes he is above the law and can do what he wants, when he wants, how he wants and with no repercussions from anybody.

Guess Blago's re-election dreams have been dashed.

I suspect that Daley and Obama had full knowledge of this. Blago had to be taken out before Obama took office for obvious politcal reasons.

2 years from know will Patty revert to her maiden name, and be selling Real Estate, and be living in Dads basement?

HOPE this sends a message of CHANGE to all the elected officials. If Barry comes out with a statement or news conference critical of Blago- This right leaning conservative will be obliged to give a thumbs up to Barry.

Wonder if Durban the Turban will try and derail the case or get Blago pardoned before he even gets to the Mininum security Correctional Facility with George Ryan?

And the wagonman's wife runs down the stairs yelling, "don't punch him again," and the wagon guy has the future Gov by the upper arm kind of lifting him out of the bushes and he yells, "I didn't punch him, I slapped him."
And then the future Gov asks the Wagonman's wife for the Pizza, and she...

yes the feds do get you 99.9% of time when they indict you. While i know blago is dirty and deserves to go down my question is who watches the dirty feds? NO ONE! FBI and US Attorneys have free reign to do anything. My other problem is how do you get blago in just 4 yrs but you cant get Daley in over 20? WTF? You kidding me? BS!!! Also does anyone find it interesting that 2 close pals(rezko now blago) of obama have been indicted and that fitzgerald felt the need to get this one in BEFORE next months inauguration? Maybe he knows its a matter of time before obama sends him packing to maybe omaha nedraska field office or some hinky dink place away from here? Fitzgerald said it had to be done now because the pick of the next senator seat lies in blagos hands, well IT STILL DOES. He is STILL governor until impeached or he resigns. He is too arrogant to resign and impeachment may take a bit which still allows him to pick the next senator. I think fitzgerald knows more about obamas involvement but didnt say and also knows that he will be moved within next 6-12 months. obama may not do it immediately now because of how it will look but i guarantee it wont be long! AH CHICAGO POLITICS. The only ones that cant see the truth are the LIBERALS THAT KEEP PUTTING THESES GUYS IN OFICE!

It's not over yet! Stay tuned folks, there's more coming!!! Obama is tied to Blago, Emil Jones, Rezko and Daley. He's part of the arrogant inner circle of corrupt Illinois politicians and he will carry this stink into the Oval Office!

Obie follows the Illinois politician's manual: He does ANYTHING to get elected. That includes lying, extorting donations and doling out political favors in exchange for votes and cash.

Illinois pols NEVER consider the public good - the ONLY thing they think about is themselves. Everyone who pulled the lever for Obama is about to discover how they fucked themselves and this great country!

Maybe Durbin can get a two-fer out of this one, he can cry for mercy for George Ryan and Rod Blagojevich,

Durbin can ask for a pardon for Blagojevich,

After all, Blagojevich has suffered enough, he was dragged from his bed at home, taken out of his house in handcuffs, like a common criminal, he suffered the shame, humiliation and embarrassment of being dragged down to the FBI office and then to the Federal Bldg and charged with things that are mere misunderstandings, nothing more.

Blago has had enough punishment, he needs to get on with his life. Please Senator Durbin, pardon Gov. Rod now, show him some old fashioned Illinois mercy. Add Rod's name to the pardon list you send to Pres. Bush. Let's put this past us.

Ask yourself, what would George Ryan do?

If nominated I will not serve. I will not sink so low as to associate with the likes of Illinois' politicians and members of the US Senate.

I will, instead, continue for a few more years in my current position of tenured beat car operator. One can only sink so far and I am unwilling to get down there in the muck with the rest of them. I work alone and can at least conduct myself in a manner that can make my children and grandchildren proud.

At least they will never have to read about me in the newspaper or come to visit me in the Federal slammer.

Based on the charges, Blagojevich is clearly insane. If he's got two braincells to rub together and a lucid second or two, he'd better take ANY deal that's offered to roll on Daley.

If I were him, I wouldn't be counting on a pardon from the incoming Chief MFer in Charge. Hussein seems like the type to hold a grudge.

This seems like the perfect opportunity for Obama to pull a Stalin and "clean up" Chicago, replacing the Daley machine with the Obama machine. I'm sure that Jessie Jackson Jr. would love to cut a deal in exchange for his path to city hall being cleared. Senator? It's Mayor of Chicago that's the real cash cow.

CLOUT STREET REPORTS

December 8, 2008; 7:36 p.m.

"Following a 90-minute audition meeting today with Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. said HE WAS CONFIDENT IN THE PROCESS THE GOVERNOR IS USING to make his choice for a Senate successor to President-elect Barack Obama."

http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/clout_st/2008/12/rep-jesse-jacks.html


EXHIBIT "B"

December 9, 2008; 11:12 a.m.

US Attorney Peter Fitzgerald as much as said that the arrest was hurried, as Reckless Rod was about to "SELL" the senate seat vacated by Obama.

IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN EXHIBITS A & B?

Could we be lucky enough to catch both rats, (blago and JJ Jr) with the same piece of cheese!!!

ABC7's Andy Shaw asked Fitz,...if
it is obviously illegal to solicit money for the possibility of being nominated to the position of US Senator, would it also be illegal to OFFER money for that same opportunity and did your wiretap on the governor turn up any evidence of that? Fitz quickly states that all of the tapes have not been reviewed yet AND NO COMMENT!
