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?
