On the front page of Yahoo

"Ill. governor's office subpoenaed on finances" is one of the top eight stories on Yahoo.

CHICAGO - Gov. Rod Blagojevich's office has received subpoenas from a grand jury investigating allegations that his chief fundraiser traded jobs for campaign contributions, a source close to the investigation said Monday.

The governor refused to say if he had been subpoenaed, insisting it would be illegal to discuss the matter while it is before a grand jury.
Since the money was going to Blagojevich's campaign it doesn't much matter if he had to testify or if he just provided records. Blagojevich is the beneficiary of the corruption.

George Ryan wanted the people of Illinois to believe his employees were breaking the law to raise him money, but he did everything on the level himself. Now Blagojevich is gonna be using the same spin.

I didn't believe Ryan and I don't believe Blagojevich.

I'm with you. It's bad enough that Blago is a DINO (voted for Reagan TWICE!?!), but to also prove no less greedy than Ryan is a travesty.
Maybe his new nick should be "One Term Rod"?
He's toast, and I wouldn't mind seeing a real Dem in the primaries.

Ryan was no genius, but it would seem that many of Blago's blunders in this area are related to a failure of (his) intellgence and an apparently related inability to identify and hire competent staff.

Given the governor's inability to
think, Illinoisians are taking a huge risk in keeping him on and it's not just financial. He is on track to seriously degrade the quality of performance of a number of state agencies....judging by
these audits that keep popping up.
