    No. In Illinois our governors do serve their time. (Blago's predecessor governor George Ryan is about half way through his sentence i believe...)

    Nope. In the feds, you get 85%. If he is sentenced to 10 years he will do at least 8.5.

    The only I can say he's guilty of with certainty, and that is that he has really stupid looking hair.

    He should be a hit in prison.

    I don't even like seeing this jerk on TV he gives me the creeps.

    Jury Convicts Blagojevich on Nearly All Corruption Counts at Retrial

    Good news, proving that some creeps get what is coming to them.

    Can't wait to hear the sentence.

    Jury Convicts Blagojevich on Nearly All Corruption Counts at Retrial - FoxNews.com

    CHICAGO -- A jury convicted former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Monday of nearly all the corruption charges against him, including that he tried to sell or trade President Obama's old Senate seat.

    Blagojevich had faced 20 charges, including the Senate seat allegation and that he schemed to shake down executives for campaign donations. He was convicted on all charges regarding the Senate seat.

    Jurors delivered their verdicts Monday after deliberating nine days.

    Yep. Keep in mind Quinn won 3 counties. THREE. Gianoulias only won cook and lost in a squeaker. Chicago politics is undeniably dirty, arguably the dirtiest in the country. WTB a downstate gubanatorial candidate asap.

    Side note, was Edgar the last governor we had that wasnt linked to all kinds of corruption?

    Yeah, he does just... look slimy, doesn't he? Like a used car salesman crossed with a malpractice lawyer.
