Blagojevich Slated For River Tour

As in going up the river.

Blago just got butt slammed and convicted of 17 out twenty corruption charges.
He is going away for the foreseeable future, as in ten to twenty, at least.


Skeevy motherfucker.

A federal jury today convicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich on 17 of 20 counts, finding he brazenly abused the powers of his office in a series of attempted shakedowns captured on undercover government recordings.

This marks the second time in less than a year that the 54-year-old Blagojevich, the only Illinois chief executive ever impeached and ousted from office, had been convicted of a crime. The jury at his first trial last summer found him guilty of lying to theFBI, though that panel deadlocked on all the other counts. That impasse set the stage for a retrial.
This time the verdict was unequivocal, with the jury of 11 women and one man finding Blagojevich guilty on 17 criminal counts he faced, including charges of wire fraud, attempted extortion, bribery and conspiracy. The marquee charge in the case involved an attempt by Blagojevich in late 2008 to cash in on his power to name a replacement in theU.S. Senate for newly electedPresident Barack Obama.

Testifying in his own defense, Blagojevich claimed prosecutors had twisted his words recorded on secret government wiretaps and insisted he was guilty of nothing more than thinking out loud. What’s more, Blagojevich’s lawyers emphasized, none of the illegal plots he was accused of hatching ever came to fruition.

Yeah, that's it, just thinking out loud and Look!, Nothing happened!

Fucking scumbag.

We all know  most politicians are fucking weasel scumbags who would sell their own mother into slavery to hold on to power but this fucknut was a big time Democrat who thought he had a tiger by the tail and could get away with anything he wanted.

Let this be an example for you back room dealing fuckers.

I would have liked to have seen a raft of charges  drawn up against a whole bunch of other skeevy fuckers that were involved with this but apparently they are content with Blagojevich.

Another thing I would like to see is Blago being thrown in with the general population down in Joliette instead of the relative safety and comfort that they seem to reserve for white collar and political inmates.

Either way, he is all done now.

Who's next?


  1. Next?

    Heh, they are ALL guilty!GUILTY!GUILTY!!!!!!!

  2. Every Bush politician who ever lived.

    Regan ( oops he be dead )
    The entire congress
    Every lobbyist
    Most lawyers
    Most bankers
    All speculators

    In other words, bout half of the population.

  3. Every once in a while they throw one of their own under the bus, for lubrication. And to keep the proles pacified...

  4. Watched Jon Stewart last night and he had a stat that four of the past seven, or five of the past eight Governors of Illinois had done (or will do) prison time. What are they doing up there?

    Meanwhile, the state that just keeps churning out the trolls (Texas) never seems to lock one away (with the exception of Tom Delay, who was asking for it...)

  5. That's cuz Texans will never admit to being wrong. Or the best at everything.

  6. I guess it's possible to be too corrupt, after all.
