Throw the crook in jail...

FBI: Blago wanted payoff to give Obama adviser Senate seat - Jonathan Martin and Carrie Budoff Brown - Politico.com
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was captured on tape saying that unless he received “something real good” for the appointment of a top adviser to Barack Obama to fill the president-elect’s Senate seat he would appoint himself, according to the criminal complaint.
Surprise surprise -- another "public servant" using the leverage of his office for his own gain...

Throw him in jail and toss away the key...

I spent most of my life in Illinois. It's no surprise. I remember at least three former governors who did jail time for corruption and I remember secretary of state Paul Powell who was found to have millions in cash stuffed in shoeboxes in his closet after he died. There was another in the 1920's who bought off jurors by giving them state jobs and was acquitted. The real scary thing is how much has been gotten away with in that state.
