    Nice strawman; last time I looked, Palin was never arrested and hauled off by the FBI. Stevens was a Senator and hey, lookie here, we have Jefferson caught with cash in his freezer and now the Good Charlie Rangel being investigated for ethics and tax evasion.

    The thread topic however, is about a corrupt Democrat Governor. If you think Republicans outnumber Democrats in scandals, I have a bridge in Arizona to sell you.

    No surprise here. The whole Illinois shebang is corrupt from the state Governor on down to the lowly Chicago precinct captain.

    Lol. The owner of the Cubs - Tribune Co. - filed for bankruptcy yesterday. btw... another charge against Governor Blagojevich is that he demanded that Tribune Co. fire some opinion editors who were openly critical of him. If they didn't, he privately threatened to nix any notion of the state buying Wrigley Field from the financially troubled Tribune Co.

    I don't see this situation implicating Obama. I really don't.
    The desperate defense of corrupt Democrats is already under way and many are complaining about Fitzgerald and saying he'd better have something SOLID.

    I see threats and the defenses already in full swing from the Left. But alas, one is only BAD if one is accused of corruption and a Republican. Whatever happened to the Delay investigation? Oh that's right; NOTHING.

    One can accuse charge and prosecute a Republican in the public press; but do that with a Democrat and you treated as if you were a Nazi.

    First off, threatening the Tribune I thought was Daley's job. Secondly, Illinois had better not ever...EVER buy the Cubs. The Tribune is bad enough, don't need to go from bad to worse. I need a rich, crazy Texan to buy the Cubs. Someone willing to splurge for a good team. I want to hear people say "I'm tired of the Cubs making the World Series, they're always there!".

    That'll happen right after Illinois politics becomes a bastion of integrity.

    Way to try and score political points and FAIL.

    Illinois, and Chicago in general, has a systemic issue with corruption going back beyond just this governor and beyond even the past 3 years.

    I'm sure Ikari, or Tucker, who both seems far more versed in this could explain it in further detail and just how far reaching it goes.

    You however want to point at one person serving in the state obviously guilty of things (Stevens), and one Palin whose one main accusation is still pending and can be argued on both sides, and try to act like that somehow proves its any where near the level of Illinois politics for decades and decades.

    So, are you actually asserting that based on those two examplse that Alaska has a similar systemic corruption problem that Illinois has...? Or was it just a really ****ty attempt to score political points that is laughable outside of a few typical fanboys?

    I was born and raised in Niles, just a bit outside of Chicago. I love the city itself, it has some of the best things in the world. Science and nature Museum, Shedd Aquarium...one of the best aquarium's in the US. Field museum, art; in total Chicago has some of the best in the world I dare say. Chicago in and of itself is pretty awesome, except for the cabbies whom I believe are all totally insane and have no regard for driving laws.

    But when it comes to the politics, it's a **** hole.

    Why would Daley threaten the Trib? They always endorse him

    Tribune Co. owner Sam Zell wanted to sell the the Cubs franchise and Wrigley Field separately. More moolah that way. The Illinios Sports Authority, owner of Cellular Field where the White Sox play, considered buying Wrigley Field and leasing it back to the new Cubs team owner.

    Zell has whittled offers for the Cubs down to the three highest bidders. Reportedly, he will accept one of these offers by the end of this week.

    This was not the "Fitzmas" that some were hoping for.
