4th since 1967. They are 4 for 7. That is staggering.

So what bothers you then is that he could afford to pay bail after being taken into custody to be charge with crimes he allegedly committed?

Whatever power he has to fill Obama's seat now is pretty much rendered moot now anyway. He's as lame duck as they come, even if by some miracle he is cleared of any wrongdoing. The stigma is there.

Re: Illinois Governor Arrested on Corruption Charges

what bothers me is the double standard. for some reason our judicial system is, and always will be, about the money

Re: Illinois Governor Arrested on Corruption Charges

this man is employed to do what is best for the people. i hardly call what he did as representing anyone, but his own agenda. as far as power to the people, your darn right. this is a difference in belief. lets use the auto bail out for example. my belief is the big 3 were/ are grossly mis- managed. the republicans in senate are looking at the every day workers, saying they make too much money. in comparison, the big 3 wages are in line with Toyota, and Honda. to me there is nothing wrong with earning top dollar in the work place. to the G.O.P, this is a travesty. if your talking about the Chavez that stood up for the farm workers, then yes i am

what? Seriously that doesn't make a lot of sense. The question is this. What exactly does his scope of wealth have to do with anything right now and how is our judicial system about money? Just asking for a clear explanation of what you think here. Platitudes and demagoguery don't help.

What's the point of saying "If he's convicted, then yes" What's the point of saying he could be like Bob Ney, James Traficant, or Ernest Newtown (among other politicians)?

So you're angry because of what may or may not happen? I know we have diferent views and I am not arguing those issues. What I find unfortunate is that your views in this matter are so emotiuonally based and have absolutely no solid reasoning. There hasn't been one iota of information indicatng he had gotten any type of special treatment from our judicial system. He is being treated exactly how anyone else would be. And yes, I think when a federal prosecutor goes after your ass, especially Pat Fitzgerald, you're going to jail. See:Scooter Libby who is arguably "more important" than Blags is.

What bet do you wish to make? Name it. $50.00 ? The parrot avatar for a month?

There are lots of things wrong with our system and, yes, money tends to skew it. But sometimes, just sometimes, justice is actually served. He will go to jail and be fined a significant amount. Count on it.

Re: Illinois Governor Arrested on Corruption Charges

ah Joe, the voice of reason. i have had some legal dealings( thru my daughter) and have seen first hand how money makes it go. your rationale makes me gain confidence that justice will be served. i really believe the system works, if we let it
