    No suprise here. Chicago politics is totally corrupt. I'll be interested to see how far and wide the corruption is as this all unfolds.

    Wow!! And I was just watching the news before I left for work this morning and Blagojevich made some sort of snarky comment about people being sneaky and taping him, and how they are more than welcome to do so. What a cocky POS. I'm glad they got him, I'm tired of all this political corruption in IL!!

    I'm mad they couldn't have done this before he robbed the State Workers Pension Fund. All of those retirees with their pensions illegally tapped by this corrupt %&$###.:behindbar

    ITA! He has been corrupt for such a long time now and even though he KNEW he was being investigated, he was so cocky that he kept it up.

    I knew it was only a matter of time - great day in Chicago (aside from the weather of course) if you ask me.

    I've been a Southside Chicago Democrat since before I was born but I never liked Blago. Always fighting with Daley and Madigan. You knew something was up. I'm just glad that they waited until after the Presidential election for this to go down.

    I am shocked and saddened. I hope the allegations are unfounded. I have had the pleasure of meeting Blagojevich and he is very nice. Very kind and sweet to my daughter, and I am just in tears over how I will tell her about this.

    My Brother-in-law works for this guy. He's part of the Gov. personal protection team through the Illinois State Police. I'm hoping this doesn't effect them........too much. :(

    I remember shaking this crook's hand at the South Side Irish parade in Chicago during his first run for office. I didn't vote for him either time, but he really SEEMED like he was a nice guy. Boy was I and the state of Illinois WRONG! A total wolf in sheep's clothing!

    Listening to the news... he is the 5th of the last 8 to be indicted. WOW. If jailed he would be the 4th of the last 8 to go to jail.

    UNBELIEVABLE!!

    Both of them are POS's. We have plenty of corruption right here in Vegas, but these people are unbelievable! I hope the AG makes HUGE examples of them!!!
