Blagojevich Got the Boot!

Posted on January 29, 2009. Filed under: Illinois | Tags: |

Rod Blagojevich has been ousted by a state senator vote of 59-0.  They also voted against him holding future public office in Illinois.  He is now a citizen and all security protections have been removed.  Although he will no longer get a salary, he still gets retirement benefits.  This means that he are still in the pockets of Illinois citizens even though his colleagues feels that his actions were wrong.

On January 22, 2009, his wife Patti was removed from her $100,000 a year position as a fundraiser for the Christian Industrial League.

What’s next for the Blagojevich family?

Gov. Blagojevich

It’s great to be an Illinoisian.  Not only were we blessed with the biggest winner this year – President-elect Barack Obama, we were also cursed with the biggest losers of the year – Drew Peterson and Governor Rod Blagojevich.

Ahh, our dear Governor.  I really don’t know what to say about this guy.  Actually, I really don’t think much more can be said since the media has probably voiced it all.  To keep this posting short, I won’t say anything.  However, I would love to hear from you. 

Do you think he should resign?  Get impeached?  Do you care?  Hit me back with your thoughts.

Governor Rod Blagojevich Arrested

Posted on December 10, 2008. Filed under: Illinois | Tags: , , |

Governer Rod Blagojevic was arrested on conspiracy and bribery charges on today.  He allegedly try to sell President Elect Barack Obama’s senate seat.   His arrest proves that no one is above the law.  It also shows that all wrong will eventually come to light.  Unfortunately, it is also evidence of the state of politics in Illinois.  It is no secret that Chicago, Illinois, and Cook County has a terrible history of being corrupt.  The crooked people are being exposed.  All I want to know is – when is Daley’s turn?
