More Liberal Morality on Display

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was arrested today after FBI wiretaps caught him conspiring to sell the US Senate seat vacated by President elect Obama. Other charges include that he also threatened to withhold state help for a childrens' hospital unless sizable campaign contributions were given. In addition, Blagojevich is accused of threatening to withhold state aid to the Chicago Tribune in the sale of Wrigley Field unless the paper fired editorial writers who had been critical of his administration (more "unbiased" press no doubt).

Upon hearing of the charges, Obama made every effort to put as much distance as possible between himself and the fallen governor. Let's not forget however that both Blagojevich and Obama shared in the efforts of fallen campaign fund raiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko.
