    This may not be of significant interest to those outside of Illinois, but it was interesting to see a politician have to face the music. Pending appeal, of course...

    IL governors are notoriously corrupt. I'm glad that he finaly got convicted. Who's next in line? Blagojevich, our current governor. That makes four govenors in the past fifty years to have been indicted of corruption. Then again, they keep voting Daley in as Mayor of Chicago, so I shouldn't be surprised.
