I'm shocked--SHOCKED--there would be corruption in Illinois politics.

/getting that out of the way

Shocking that someone connected to the President Elect would be arrested on corruption charges. Thanks for the CHANGE Barak!!
2008-12-09 11:41:56 AM  
My friend from AZ told me this first and I am in Chicago
2008-12-09 11:41:58 AM  
Suck it, libs?
2008-12-09 11:42:06 AM  
FINALLY a green light.

Now, how many democrats will race in to white knight this mother farker because we all know that only Republicans are the ones who get arrested.
2008-12-09 11:42:10 AM  
This is obviously just the Republicans attempt to smear another democrat before they go out of office.
2008-12-09 11:42:13 AM  
cannot believe in this day of stealthy surveillance people would say such dumb things over the phone...
2008-12-09 11:42:21 AM  
That's some moniker.
2008-12-09 11:42:29 AM  
Is our FBI betraying us becuase Bill Clinton created a socialist leaning legacy in the FBI?

I am proud to see the FBI doing some of the good work keeping our elected officials honest in the Obama successor probe and our buddy in Louisiana. But where were they years ago when Obama/Rezko situation occurred.

What about Barney Frank's imprudence with the risk portfolio of Fannie and Freddie? What about Nancy Pelosi's dealings with Del Monte'? What about capital hill becoming increasingly socialist ? Are we to assume that they will be prudent with the inherrant challenges that face a capitalist society? Who is that stupid?

Where were they when the super rich used megahedge funders like Goldman Sachs and hired their analysts submit press releases to pump and dump the market price of oil? And why would Warren Buffett want to buy a significant portion of a business that runs like that?

What about George Sorros' foundation writing policies for the Obama administration? What are the ties of this foundation? Who are they?

What about the fact that Obama spent more than George Bush and John Kerry combined in the 2004 election? Where is all that money coming from?

What about Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bringing the "fairness doctrine" to the table and intimidating talk radio with it? Shouldn't that intimidate all stations that "endorse" a presidential candidate and provide him with a free air campaign like CNN/ABC/CBS/MSNBC/Times Magazine/Newsweek/Oprah/.........? Why is it Rush they want to attack?

That headline is funnier if you picture Sean Connery saying it.
2008-12-09 11:42:36 AM  
Corruption? In my Illinois politics?

It's more likely than you think.
2008-12-09 11:42:38 AM  
That's some fine corruption, Lou.
2008-12-09 11:42:41 AM  
Interesting that it is around the same time Chicago Tribune files for bankruptcy protection.

Christmas has come early for us in Illinois this year!
2008-12-09 11:42:46 AM  
Drudge is nutting all over himself on this one.
2008-12-09 11:42:51 AM  
Isn't this a repeat?
2008-12-09 11:42:58 AM  
This stuff always happens when I'm about to head of to work. I'll come back around 3 p.m. and this will be loaded with comments
2008-12-09 11:43:03 AM  

Desquamation: Suck it, libs?

Nope, suck it Combine. The corruption here knows no party affiliation.

Someone had to post it.

MrBigglesworth: Now, how many democrats will race in to white knight this mother farker because we all know that only Republicans are the ones who get arrested.

Are you kidding? We HATE him in IL. He has like a 4% approval rating. Everyone I've talked to has said 'about time.'
2008-12-09 11:43:10 AM  
I'm just glad Obama was never touched by any of that Illinois political corruption.
2008-12-09 11:43:18 AM  
Øh Schnåp!
2008-12-09 11:43:20 AM  
A crooked politician.

I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
2008-12-09 11:43:25 AM  
And so it came to pass that on the 9th day of December in the year 2008, the overlord of the state of Illinois was brought low. And there was much rejoicing.
2008-12-09 11:43:29 AM  
Wow, so there IS a state more corrupt than New Jersey.
2008-12-09 11:43:31 AM  
i'd say that guy's got some balls. not bright, but ballsy
2008-12-09 11:43:40 AM  
His father was a war criminal, what did you expect ?

*stabs subby in the eye with the sharpened end of an interspace toothbrush*
2008-12-09 11:43:58 AM  
Say what you will, but this dude had balls.

Of course, since he found out he's been had I imagine they've shrunk quite a bit.
2008-12-09 11:44:03 AM  
And just yesterday he was pandering for votes at some closed window factory and berating BofA.

/BofA moves in mysterious ways ...
2008-12-09 11:44:04 AM  
I for one welcome our new ANARCHY WHILE THERE IS NO GOVERNOR

2008-12-09 11:44:12 AM  
Pat Fitzgerald is a badass.
2008-12-09 11:44:13 AM  

Postal Penguin: This is obviously just the Republicans attempt to smear another democrat before they go out of office.

I think democrats hate this guy just as much. The Chicago Tribue was never easy on him.
2008-12-09 11:44:23 AM  

dogfood: Drudge is nutting all over himself on this one.

The Rezko story is bigger
