"Same as it ever was..."

The News-Gazette (Kate Clements):
SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Friday appointed a new University of Illinois trustee who donated more than $83,000 to the governor's campaign....
Dear Governor Blagojevich, you created some goodwill with your appointments to the Gambling Board. But people suspect you're a "quid pro quo" guy. So you need to keep appointing squeaky clean people to the various governing bodies if you want to capitalize on the goodwill from the Gambling Board appointments.

Your father-in-law accused you of selling appointments for $50,000, right? I'm just a guy that runs a blog, and I lost my only campaign running for elected office, so you can dismiss what I'm about to say. With that caveat in mind, I'd recommend not appointing anybody that's given your campaign over $50,000. It looks bad.
