    He now joins 3 other Illinois governors in recent history to be convicted and serve time for felonies.

    Ahhh the corrupt Illinois political machine.

    You know without getting political he did do quite a few things I like and in many ways was one of the better governors we have had, that's not saying much but what the hell. He was this arrogant his whole career. When news of his possible corruption became public he dared the feds in the press to follow him and within weeks they had the taped conversations and arrest warrants.

    So no matter what he definitely has only himself to blame.

    Hung jury to guilty in a few days. Not so surprising.

    They would have kept trying him until they got him

    He still wasn't able to call the real criminals to testify

    I'll wait for the appeal results
