Governor Bag-o-Tricks

The downstate Illinois nickname for Blago. Thought I'd post a link to the text of the complaint. Most of what they actually might get him for isn't even the alleged "Senate for Sale " scheme. Those of us from Illinois know he was dirty shortly after he took office. Trouble is, when he was elected, then-governor George Ryan (a Republican) was also on trial for corruption. His deeds lead to the illegal licensing of criminals for commercial truck licenses, which ultimately (allegedly) lead to fatal accidents involving those criminals who proved to be inept and irresponsible about their driving.

Here's G-Rod's Complaint and affidavit:

  1. Forgot the song about G-Rod I got via email (Sung to the tune of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"):

    Get packin', Rod Blagojevich
    The state's in disarray
    The Tribune wants you unemployed
    At least by Christmas Day.
    The TV pundits want your head
    Could there be pay-to-play?

    Oh, tidings of comfort and joy
    Save Illinois!
    Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.

    Good riddance Rod Blagojevich
    Your Elvis look's inane,
    The Senate's mad, so's Lisa's dad.
    You drive us all insane.
    Our transit's broke, the state's a joke,
    The Tollway's one big pain.

    Oh, tidings of comfort and joy
    Save Illinois!
    Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.

    Good luck old Rod Blagojevich
    The feds have quite a place.
    Fitzgerald's poked his nose around
    And if he has a case,
    George Ryan's moving stuff around
    Creating extra space.

    Oh, tidings of comfort and joy
    Save Illinois!
    Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.
