Hopefully he'll end up as somebody's "bitch".
The worst kept secret in Illinois is how utterly slimy, despicable, contemptible and corrupt this man really is. Our Governor Rod "Elvis" Blagojevich (D-IL) is. (D is for Disgusting, he does not deserve the Democrat nom de plume.)
He needs to be removed from office immediately. Trust me, this man without honor will not do the honorable thing and resign. Impeachment is the only option.
Any politician giving out the "Let's-wait-and-see-cos-he-hasn't-been-convicted-yet" blather is either a moron or dirty themselves. Democrats cannot afford to dither on this one. While Republicans have racked up quite the rap sheet, Democrats should not be protecting this...
Impeach Rod Blagojevich now. And if his replacement turns out to be corrupt, impeach again, and again, and again, until we get somebody ethical in office.
Democrats were elected overwhelmingly on a platform of change, and change includes holding the ethical high ground.
Here's is my close encounter with this slimeball.
A couple of years ago when he was running for Governor against Judy Baer Topinka they both made an appearance in the Gay Pride parade. As Judy's car passed my section of the crowd one of Elvis's minions was trailing the car within the crowd stirring chants of "What was she thinking?" It was despicable Chicago politics. Most of the crowd chanted away thinking it was spontaneous, and probably not knowing why they were chanting to begin with. Although Judy was a Republican, she was and is just as gay friendly as Elvis ever was, so the reception was uncalled for.
Anyway, I saw this clown doing his dirty work and then turned around and saw Governor Hairdo gladhanding the crowd right in front of my face. I should have called him out as an ass at the time but instead did nothing.
I can never vote for a Republican. Not until this generation of bigots die off. Instead I sat out the gubernatorial election by not voting this category. If Judy wants my vote she needs to change parties, and I will give my vote and greenbacks in support of her run gladly.
As for AG Patrick Fitzgerald, Keep going! Our state, county and city government needs serious housecleaning of these embarassingly corrupt douchebags.
