If a person wanted a clear career path to living the next decade or so in jail – surely there is no better way to achieve that than by being elected Governor of the Sate of Illinois.
Today’s sentencing of former governor Rod Blagojevich now brings to four the number of Illinois governors who have been imprisoned – the current score being three Democrats and one Republican. Apparently bad behavior is blind to party affiliation. By the way, that’s four out of eight governors who have been elected by the citizens of the Land of Lincoln in the last 50 years.
If the Great Emancipator were alive to see the hooliganism of those who served as chief executive in his adopted state, he would bow his head in shame and shed a river of tears.
