I was wondering what party he belonged to. The article seems to skip over that detail.

“A cabinet post or ambassadorship for himself.”

Milorad expected: “A cabinet post or ambassadorship for himself.”

Who is the only person who could make that payoff?

What did Obama know, and when did he know it?

That’s the last thing the MSM will be asking.

There is corruption all the way around in politics. I have to admit the Democrats seem to have more claims on corruption.

Now, somebody tell me, with a straight face, that Zero came out of the cesspool smelling like Daisies?
He gets a big leg up on a house from Rezko..Michelle gets a whopper of a salary from a beneficiary of govt largess.
This is what friends in Chicago law enforcement told me about last spring..that the Gov was going down and Zero might finally be implicated.
Rats...a criminal enterprise.

Where you find corruption, you'll see unions mentioned somewhere.

“A substantial salary for himself at a either a non-profit foundation or an organization affiliated with labor unions;

Placing his wife on paid corporate boards where he speculated she might garner as much as $150,000 a year;

Promises of campaign funds – including cash up front; and

A cabinet post or ambassadorship for himself. “

Wow, does this sound familiar to anyone?

Anyone?

Generally speqking, yes but here in Illinois corruption is pretty much bi-partisan.

So the question now is:

Who is Senate candidate 5? (Implications seem to be it’s a man)
—Emil Jones?
—Jesse Jackson, Jr.?
—Bobby Rush?

Yea. But I seriously doubt this was his first endeavor into the corrupt. He is, after all, Governor of Illinois. ;) I hope this has long term effects, but I doubt it. He is no Jack Abramhoff after all. (/sarc)

Mouth hanging open here.

Mind-boggling corruption and “maybe I’ll clean up my image and run for President in 2016.” Illinois politics at its finest.

"reveal that the office of the Governor has become nothing more than a vehicle for self-enrichment, unrestricted by party affiliation"

*O*'s camp will now come out with another nonsensical "Sarah" story, the media will drool, and *O*'s connection to anything "dirty" will be swept under the rug.

How true.....I lived in IN for 20 plus years and it was common knowledge about the corruption in IL. I would have trouble voting for even an (R) coming out of IL politics..

Any bets someone else is warming up in the bull pen to take a perp walk? My guess is Harris will be the first to roll and then the boy Gov. will also play a little CYA.

Pass the popcorn, please.

No offense but when we people in flyover country hear the words “Illinois” and “politics”, we immediately think Democrat. Unless you are talking about Abe Lincoln. Same goes for Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, etc.....
