I've been saying hes innocent for months. everyone says im crazy. But the fact remains "what did Roland Burres get? that is who he appointed! People should be tried for what they do not for what they say or think....REMEMBER the next one that they get is you.....what if you say to your child when u get home your getting a spankin which is NOT illegal its a religious right. and your kid gets held by some guy who thinks hes an authority figure. next thing you know your being arrested for what you said you were gonna do or should do ......trading favors and getting political position is commonplace its called playing hardball and it is naive to be shocked at things that it is any other way anywhere in politics years ago knights would say if i do this for you what lands can i run? so that i can serve in a better capacity. The military a man gets rank from his maneuvering and execution of his decisions and stewardship of his responsibility sometimes you have to do what Radar did on M.A.S.H the television show. "come on Sparky one hand washes the other" This is the Windy City even now they are blowing the other way and Blago is the master....

Politics from start to finish is the same everywhere. What did Blago really do?? Someone like the Madigans had a hard for him .. thats all. Those in glass houses should never throw stones. He is cut from the same cloth as all of our congressmen and state senators. Lobbyists garnering favors,You scratch my back, I scratch yours. Its not what type of person you are if you want to serve the people. It is only the money you can raise that will elect you. Cap all elections now. The state of Illinois is near broke as well as our federal goverment. Yet we waste time and untold millions because someone has a vendetta against a elected official. Kind of like the drug war... we have met the enemy goverment and drug dealers and we are theirs!!!!
