Can you believe all this outrageous criminal behavior by the Governor of Illinois? His name is Ron Blagojevich, and to put it gently, he is a corrupt bonehead. The FBI (who as we well know you cannot always trust) apparently have tape recordings of the Governor  discussing the withholding of state funds from a Children’s Hospital until the chief executive made campaign contributions, and outright trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat recently vacated by president — elect Barack Obama. How can this guy be so brazen? How stupid to even talk about these criminal activities. Not only is he a crook, he’s a dumb crook.  And when you talk about the corruption Louisiana, did you know that the Governor before Blagojevich is also in jail?  Maybe they can share a cell, and talk about all the damage they have done to the state of Illinois.

The second video shows the Governor holding a prèss  conference the day before he is arrested telling any and all to tape his conversations.  Well they did, and his term as Governor is about to come to an abrupt end.
