Payback for closing our parks!
I bet the Feds were waiting for this seat to be dished out.

Its like free candy for the taking..

Now the Feds can concentrate on Madigan & Jones!

Don't panic!

I hear George Ryan has set aside an extra blanket for him in his cell.
How nice-they'll have a lot to talk about!

Updated at 8:57 a.m.:
On the issue of the U.S. Senate selection, federal prosecutors alleged Blagojevich sought appointment 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.

Blagojevich and Harris conspired to demand the firing of Chicago Tribune editorial board members responsible for editorials critical of Blagojevich in exchange for state help with the sale of Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs baseball stadium owned by Tribune Co.

Sounds like he took his job seriously and with 100% dutiful exercise.
Good companies desire these qualities in their workforce.

This is a great resume bullet point that the Laundry Division at any Federal Prison should consider.

You guys were right all along!!

CHICAGO - Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested Tuesday on federal charges that he brazenly conspired to sell or trade the Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama to the highest bidder.

A 76-page FBI affidavit says the 51-year-old Democrat was intercepted on court-authorized wiretaps over the last month conspiring to use the vacant Senate seat to obtain personal benefits for himself and his wife, Patti.

Even Montana's favorite liberal rag says so.  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28139155/?GT1=43001

Well of course we were right Tex!
We here @The Heartland are nothing if not astute political prognosticators...for Outdoorsmen!
...And, having been handed the proverbial "Turd-End of the Stick" by corrupt Gov.s in our collective resent past, we can spot a crooked one after only 1½ terms in Office...not too shabby Huh?!
Of course when their deep-seated narcissism precludes them from being anything other than blatantly flamboyant in their criminal activities (even when they KNOW for a fact that the Heat has been turned up) ...it kind of makes them hard to ignore!

Lets see how long it takes for Lt.Gov Pat Quinn to rescind the infamous State Parks Closings once he takes office?!

SideNote: I now know how it feels to be bi-polar, I'm simultaneously overjoyed to the point of being giddy (at his arrest) and deeply saddened to be a resident of the worst state in the union on what is surely one of the worst days in it's long and varied history!

Here I though Minnesota was about the worst state in the union.  Remember, we elected Jesse the Body Venutra as Gov.  We still don't know who our new Senator will be ; Norm Coleman or the idiot Al Franken.

Who's next in line for you, how do they fair?

Lt. Governor Pat Quinn is next in line.
I work with their office in outdoors, youth and environmental matters, so I'll just say I look forward to a fresh alternative.

Just as an outsider, it seems the corruption must be really embedded into the system when the Gov. can make so many outrageous statements to so many politicos without alarming anyone.  Did I hear right on the news tonight that one Senate hopeful actually offered a bribe in response to Blago's demands?

I don't know anything about your Lt. Gov., but just wonder if he could be clean and still have gotten as far as he has in that system.  I always heard about Chicago, but didn't know it reached into the state capital.  Sounds like a clean sweep is called for - from one end to the other.

Maybe y'all can join forces with my neighbor and become the corrupt state of Illinouisiana? lol2

Latest word is that Milo has no intention of stepping down, let the impeachment proceedings begin ...ASAP!!!
He's already made bail or I'd suggest a Cowboy Movie type Angry Mob, a pot of hot Tar,  a big bag of chicken feathers, and a rail out of town!

$4500 to make Bail?Huh? $4500 just misappropriated the cash out of his "Petty Bribes Fund"??

Heard the news while at work, had to crack a beer, can't get the boss to keep a bottle of champagne on hand for occasions like this. I have heard that in Il. there is no burden of proof to impeach, all that is neede is the votes. Let's get started and put good guy Pat Quinn in charge. If anyone reading this doubts Q's creds, check his website.(I unfortunately don't have the address handy)
What a great day for outdoorsmen in Illinois!

I'm not a real political pundit but I play one on the internet, in that capacity my take on Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn is that (with the exception of his work with Wildlife Preservation) he likes to fly under the radar.
I've had the opportunity to meet him a few times, seemed to be an authentically nice guy, although I have to say that other than his diligent work with his favorite Wildlife de jure du jour, I'm not very well versed in his other political accomplishments.

I have to agree with Al, I think Quinn is too low profile to be involved in Blago's crap. I also agree with Tex that it seems unbelievable that Quinn wasn't involved with this, but that at this point seems to be the fact.

In regards to Blago...Talk about the perfect storm of stupid. Reminds me of another liberal that thought his shit was to good to stink and above everyone else. I knew he was just another 'say anything to get elected' asshole out for his own good after promising to eliminate the toll roads then put his friggin name all over them while increasing toll fees.

Never heard anything bad about Quinn either. He seems to be on the level as much as a politician in these parts can be. Compared to the last two gubners, Quinn will look like the second coming and he actually cares about natural resources.

Now if we could only rid Illinois of tricky Dicky Daley along with his henchmen and start the whole Illinois election process over again...
