A New Fitzmas? Obama's First Scandal

Sphere: Related Content

And the dude isn't even in office yet. US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald--a friggin' bulldog if there ever was one--indicted Obama confidant and Illinois Guv Rod Blagojevich:

Governor Blagojevich has been arrested in the middle of what we can only describe as a political corruption crime spree. We acted to stop that crime spree.

The most appalling conduct Governor Blagojevich engaged in, according to the complaint filed today or unsealed today, is that he attempted to sell a Senate seat, the Senate seat he had the sole right to under Illinois to appoint to replace President-elect Obama.
Emphasis mine.

Let me repeat that, the Illinois governor was selling the recently vacated Senate seat of Barack Obama. Obama is trying to distance himself but his top people are already making huge mistakes and handling it like the amateurs they are.

The sheer incestuous nature of Chicago politics all but ensures that Obama's name will continue to come up and a Special Prosecutor will have to be named. Fitzgerald will continue to dog this case relentlessly and Obama will look like he's covering up if even remotely interferes. That leaves Rahm Emanual to intercede the "Chicago way" and I don't see Fitz backing down. They had their "Fitzmas" and it left them dejected and sullen. I suspect ours will not.

This will make White Water pale in comparison and Obama will have some serious 'splaining to do in the first weeks and months of his campaign. Call them all to testify; Rezko, Axelrod, Obama. Put them on the record and under oath and let's here how they really play politics in northern Illinois.

Dude's a scumbag, even by Chicago standards and even the most-liberal of fishwraps are calling him out. Sweet!
