Illinois Gov. Blagojevich, chief of staff, arrested
Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested by FBI agents on federal corruption charges Tuesday morning.

Blagojevich and Harris were arrested simultaneously at their homes at about 6:15 a.m., according to Frank Bochte of the FBI. Both were transported to FBI headquarters in Chicago.

In one charge related to the appointment of a senator to replace Barack Obama, prosecutors allege that Blagojevich sought appointment for himseld as Secretary of Health and Human Services in the new Obama administration, or a lucrative job with a union, in exchange for appointing a union-preferred candidate. ...

Hasn't there been a Mayor Daley in Chicago for at least 50 Years?
There've been 2 Chicago Mayor Daleys:

#1. Mayor Richard J. Daley: 1955 to 1976

#2. His Son, Mayor Richard M. Daley: 1989 to NOW !

Between #1 & #2 There has been The Following Mayors of Chicago:

a. Michael A. Bilandic: 1976 to 1979

b. Jane M. Byrne: 1979 to 1983

c. Harold Washington: 1983 to 1987 (Died [Really, Murdered/Assassinated] in Office)

d. David D. Orr: 1987 to 1987 (8 Days, Interim Mayor)

e. Eugene Sawyer: 1987 to 1989

I've Personally Come To The Conclusion that Mayor Harold Washington was Murdered/Assassinated Just After Winning A Second Term as Mayor of Chicago in 1987.

I Believe that he was Murdered/Assassinated by The Satanic Vatican "Jesuits" of Rome in Chicago; Ala Their Sophisticated Poisons: Via Their Irish/Italian/Sicilian "Mobsters-Mafiosi" Contacts--Who Are Secret in The Daley-Chicago-Democratic-Political-Machine !

Mayor Washington had EVERY Intention, if He Won A Second Term, To BUST The Trucking/Leasing Bribery, Graft, Extortion, Corruption & "Pay-To-Play" Politics that Riddled Chicago's City Hall During The "Rum, Romanism & Rebellion" Days of Vaticanist Daley #1 !

Washington was an African Bible Methodist-Episcopalian !

"WILL 'FEDITIS' (Federal-Investigationitis) SPREAD TO OBAMA AND DALEY ?

By John Kass--Chicago Tribune

. . .But just imagine if [Blagojevich] talks to the feds, or stands up on his hind legs to fight back, if fellow Democrats impeach him in the Illinois legislature. The governor might actually mention a few of the legislators deals. Ouch.

Obama, though not personally implicated in any of this, wouldn't like it much. The national media outlets were desperate to portay him as someone about to transend our politics. But in Chicago he was just a smooth guy on the way up, looking the other way.

If crazy hair and strange utterances--even frightening expressions in public--are the criteria for a politician who's been "disabled". I wonder why the Illinois Democrats didn't apply their standards to another guy.

Mayor Richard Daley.

Sometimes he frightens people, his hair gets wild, his eyebows fly off his forehead, his face turns purple, his jaw juts out, like when he's channeling his inner Mayor Chucky.

It happened a few years ago, when the Tribune revealed he gave $100 million in affirmative action contracts to white guys who were friends of his with Outfit connections. Even Obama didn't question the mayor's sanity then. Nor did any other Democrat. . ."

IL Gov. Blagojevich & Chief of Staff May NOT Be The ONLY Ones Arrested:

"EMANUEL DISCUSSED SENATE JOB

Chief Of Staff For Obama Had List Of Names-

By Bob Secter (Chicago) Tribune Reporter-

...(Rahm) Emanuel, who has long been close to both Blagojevich and Obama, has refused to respond to questions about any involvement he may have had with the Blagojevich camp over the Senate pick. A Spokeswoman for Emanuel also declined to comment Friday.

One source confirmed that communications between Emanuel and the Blagojevich administration were captured on court approved wiretaps.

Another source said that contact between the Obama camp and the governor's administration regarding the Senate seat began the Saturday before the Nov. 4 election, when Emanuel made a call to the cell phone of Harris. The conversation took place around the same time press reports surfaced about Emanuel being approached about taking the high-level White house post should Obama win.

Emanuel delivered a list of candidates who would be "acceptable" to Obama, the source said. On the list were Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, Illinois Veterans Affairs director Tammy Duckworth, state Comptroller Dan Hynes and U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Chcago, the source said. All are Democrats..."

It doesn't surprise me ONE BIT that IL Gov. Rod Blagojevich & His Chief of Staff were Arrested by The FBI on Federal Corruption Charges This Morning !

Back in 2002; when I was Circulating Petitions to Run For Illinois State Treasurer; I ran into his Father-in-Law, The Powerful 33rd Ward Alderman Richard "Dick" Mell, at a Starbucks accross the street from Chicago's City Hall.

He asked me how I was doing. I said I was doing fine. He then told me how he was upset with Mayor Daley; telling me that the Mayor didn't have any "B----" in trying to run his brother, Bill Daley (Clinton's former Commerce Secretary), for Governor of IL.

He then asked me if I was running for anything. I told him that I was circulating petitions to get on the Ballot for State Treasurer.

He then told me that if I could raise between $50,000 & 1/2 Million "Big Ones" as a Political Contribution to His Son-in-Law, IL 5th Dist. Congressman Rod Blagojevich; that He (Mell) would see to it that I'd be The NEXT State Treasurer of IL !

I declined the offer.

That was my First personal encounter with the "Pay to Play" Politics of The Chicago "Machine": The Dick Mell-Rod Blagojevich Chicago "Machine" !

Ofcourse, The Daleys & The Obamas have Their Chicago "Machines" Too !

BUT IN WASHINGTON D.C. ? ? ?

Elsewhere the Tribune characterizes the charges as "staggering, even by Illinois standards." Perhaps because the venality was so blatant?

"Poet. Little is known about Harry's life. He was most-likely born into a noble family perhaps from the Lothians and it is thought that he was blind from birth. He is credited with writing the patriotic epic, "The Life and Heroic Actions of the Renowned Sir William Wallace, General and Governor of Scotland ", around 1460."

Of our ancestors, brave true ancient Scots,
Whose glorious scutcheons knew no bars or blots;
But blood untainted circled ev'ry vein,
And ev'ry thing ignoble did disdain;
Of such illustrious patriots and bold,
Who stoutly did maintain our rights of old,
Who their malicious, invet'rate foes,
With sword in hand, did gallantly oppose:
And in their own, and nation's just defence,
Did briskly check the frequent insolence
Of haughty neighbours, enemies profest,
Picts, Danes, and Saxons, Scotland's very pest;
Of such, I say, I'll brag and vaunt so long
As I have power to use my pen or tongue;
And sound their praises in such modern strain
As suiteth best a Scot's poetic vein,
First, here I honour, in particular,
Sir William Wallace, much renown'd in war,
Whose bold progenitors have long time stood,
Of honourable and true Scottish blood.

I like this nonpartisan approach to Illinois politics, first the Republican governor was thrown in to prison and now a Democratic one is in hot water!
