With the election only 30+ days ago, and the IL senate seat vacant, Gov. Rod Blagojevich, decides the best way to fill the seat is to the higest bidder. I have no doubt these things occur all the time, for all kinds of vacancies, be they political or in an office; however this is utterly despicable. To so blatantly pimp out a seat for money is unconsiounable. Hell, I even had to look up the word so I knew how to spell it correctly.
It saddens me that it’s a Democrat, but let’s face it, neither side of the aisle has ever had clean hands. But the fact Blagojevich was so damned blatant about his intentions is what makes it all the more infuriating. the fact he is recorded on wire taps saying “Fuck him,” when referring to Obama and filling the senate seat says more about the man than anything else.
Not a politician; not a trusted servant,; but a hack opportunist, who would turn tricks behind the governor’s mansion for 5 bucks a pop if given a chance. This is not someone who belongs in politics, and will forever be an embarrassment to the Democratic Party. Good riddance to that piece of crap, and may he serve a long prison sentence with a nice, friendly cellie.
