Rod got busted. Sad for Rod but good for democracy. And a definite achievement for FBI. Lets cover some background on Rod Blagojevich and his wife Patricia (Patti) Blagojevich. Incidentally Rod’s wife Patricia is also prominent in the corruption scandal surrounding the first family of Illinois.
Milorad “Rod” R. Blagojevich was the Democratic governor of American state of Illinois and the second serbian to hold such a high office in United States after George Voinovich of Ohio. You might be suprised to know that Blagojevich was the first Democrat in thirty (30) years to be elected as the governor of Illinois. And how he blew it away. Not only for himself but for all the Democrats. He is the kind of politician that makes you sick about politics and wants you to throw up at the same time.
Today, on December 9, 2008, Rod Blagojevich was arrested by FBI and charged with with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. In fact while the governor was being arrested, he tried to bribe the FBI arresting officer with the Illinios senate seat that was vacated by Obama. This is very incredulous.
Additionally, the Justice Department charge alleges that Rod plotted to commit several “Pay to Play” ideas like selling President-elect Barack Obama’s vacated United States Senate seat to the highest bidder.
The scale is staggering. How pathetic this vermin is. Now here is an angle many conservatives are going to love. Rod’s better half, his wife Patricia Blagojevich, was a business partner of slum lord Rezko for more than ten years and in fact received over 40G in real estate commissions from the convicted businessman.
This thing goes much deeper and I won’t be surprised if Obama was already in the know how of all the inside details.
What do you guys think about? Anyway you look at it, Rod should be made an example of this kind of behaviour and the results one get.
