Blagojevich Cartoons

Blagojevich was found guilty on 17 of 20 federal corruption charges, and faces up to 300 years behind bars.

Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who famously tried to sell the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama, was found guilty on 17 of 20 federal corruption charges, and faces up to 300 years behind bars. Interestingly, Blagojevich becomes the second straight Illinois governor convicted of corruption. His predecessor, George Ryan, is now serving 6 1/2 years in federal prison.

blago did master living at the expense of the taxpayer. He could now insure another 300 years of that support. I do wonder if he will occupy the same cell as his predecessor?
