Technically, it's the Illinios Governor Rod Blagojevich who's in trouble for "allegedly" attempting to sell Obama's Senate seat to the highest bidder but what is it with Chicago and Illinios that corrupt (criminal) politicians just gravitate there?
This article is stressing that there's no link to Obama but based on how well "investigative journalists" were at investigating Obama during the election, I'll probably never believe there was absolutely no connection. It was Obama's senate seat for crying out loud, he must have at least heard about Blagojevich's doings through the political grapevine there.
I think I like this line best of all, "Fitzgerald described the situation by saying: "We were in the middle of a corruption crime spree and we wanted to stop it."
