Unless you are building heating units with the Amish, you might have noticed that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was arrested yesterday, for attempting to sell the senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. It's that simple. Corruption at its most reprobate within the public spectrum.
Public spotlight on some episodes Obama thought he had put behind him, including his ties to Antoin Rezko, a convicted Chicago real-estate developer who was accused in a Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit Tuesday of scheming with Blagojevich. Rezko raised campaign funds for both men, and was one of Obama's earliest supporters as he was climbing the political ladder in Illinois.
