Power Corrupts, Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely

Illinois governor taken into custody

“Your in a heap of trouble boy.”  – Jackie Gleason as the sheriff in Smokey and the Bandit.

The Feds have been after this dude for a while.  They finally put their case together in arresting the two term govenor Rod Blagojevich for“conspiring to get financial benifits through his authority to appoint a U.S.  senator to fill the vancancy left by Barack Obama’s election to president. ”

Complete with a 76 page FBI affidavit and court approved wire taps, ole Rod is going to look for a Cochran like attorney to explain his trying to get the hook up for himself and his wife via campaign contributions, a salary through a foundation.  Basically the senator’s position was “up for sale.” 

The Feds did an Ice-T style  “Six In The Morning”  raid at his crib to scoop him up.

So much for public servant-hood.  This isn’t going to be pretty.  Greed can be a mother for ya!  Arrogance is even worse. 

The Feds sho nuff got their geechie now!

I didn’t know the Fed’s were coming didn’t have time to ask.” – Ice C
