A scandalous trend?

It was once rare for a governor to be indicted

Revelations this week about New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's involvement in a prostitution ring were stunning. But maybe not too stunning to Illinois residents. Our former Gov. George Ryan is serving a 6 1/2-year sentence in prison on corruption charges. Onetime Illinois Gov. Dan Walker also served time. And while our current governor is not accused of wrongdoing, Blagojevich's administration is under a microscope in the Tony Rezko trial.
Can we now call this a trend?

YES, you CAN call this a trend if you also take into consideration that Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell has been implicated in the Clinton Finance Fraud. This obviously is escaping mainstream media but is going viral online. I understand people wanting to protect these elected officials, but there could be a backlash once Americans realize that the information has been purposely suppressed. Gov. Ed Rendell along with Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are being subpoenaed this very month to testify in the trial taking place later this year.

Do you not think this should be reported??
