December 8 - Governor Rod Blagojevich announces the State of Illinois will cease doing business with Bank of America.
December 9 - Governor Rod Blagojevich, who has been reportedly under investigation by the federal government for three years, is indicted based on a recent wire tap.
If he is as dirty as he is being portrayed, why did it take three years to find something on him?
When is the last time you saw a governor take a high profile stand for a small business and working people against a multinational bank?
The FBI sure shut that down quick.
Now, now, before everyone gets their underwear all bunched in a wad, sure, Blago seems to be corrupt, and I'll join the lynch gang for the political hanging same as everyone else is. Human nature being what it is, if you don't, you risk getting lynched yourself. But what's this? The car-jacker (who never got 4200 fine Americans killed with lies) was going down the path of a big no-no when they finally busted him? Eliot Spitzer actually doing something right for once, busting Wall Street big boys when another wiretap catches his tawdry affair with a hooker? Bad boy, Eliot. Bad boy. Meanwhile Don Spiegelman gets sent to prison for the crime of being a Democrat winning in a red state, and Karl Rove is still walking free.
Announcement: There will be no accountability for the Bush administration after he leaves office. The scumbags who would not even impeach him will certainly not have the fortitude to prosecute him, or any of them. Anyway, he's just going to pardon himself and everyone around him, so forget it.
My my, look at how fast someone can be impeached when they are messing with B of A. This is serious, not just starting some dumb old war, shredding the Constitution, defying congressional subpoenas, and otherwise in a thousand different ways telling the American people to go F&%^ themselves.
