Federal authorities arrested Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Tuesday on
charges that he brazenly conspired to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat left
vacant by President-elect Barack Obama to the highest bidder.
Blagojevich also was charged with illegally threatening to withhold
state assistance to Tribune Co., the owner of the Chicago Tribune, in the sale
of Wrigley Field, according to a federal criminal complaint. In return for state
assistance, Blagojevich allegedly wanted members of the paper's editorial board
who had been critical of him fired.
He knew he was the subject of investigations and still he couldn't stop himself from rank, crass stupidity. Incredible.
BTW, Proverbs 16:18
