Guilty on 17 out of 20 charges !!
Judge will set a sentencing date.
No surprise there, He should get the max, make him an example.
More to the point is just how loud will he sing to cut a deal on sentencing ?
Who will be first for him to throw under the bus ?
If Illinois would only throw these guys in prison before they became Governor.
I guess Blago didn't bribe the right people to get off.
I guess his situation wasn't so "golden" after all !!
I was hoping he would walk away scott free. Not that I think he's innocent but for whatever reason, certain power players seemed intent on taking him out. Just to upset the apple cart, I'd like to have seen an across the board "not guilty" just to watch after the fact and see what happened.
Sometimes you have to be willing to beat the grass in order to startle the snakes!
Not that I disagree with your point, but Blago did have a way of "kicking Sampson in the gonads" just for fun. I mean, c'mon! Everybody knew he was being investigated for years and that his phones were tapped and still he flew off at the mouth! He's lucky Chicago politics has been tamed down since Capone.
If he goes to prison will he have to get a buzz cut ?? I'd like to see a picture of that.
He gets to keep the hair........
How long after sentencing will he have to wait until his Presidential pardon ?
If he were going to a state facility he would most likely lose the hair.
Yeah, Rod loved pushing the envelope for sure. Rod free and on the streets might have forced some snakes from the shadows in order to protect certain interests and that's when a larger and clearer picture for us meer mortals might have appeared.
Just read an interesting piece from a certain perspective on the Blago case but it's deeper analysis may be a bit distasteful. Don't say you weren't forewarned!
I predict that within a week of 0bama's final day as president(whenever that is) Blogo will again be a free man.
I don`t know. Blago`s a pretty big douche. They would cut Ryan loose first in the order of imprisoned Illinois governors.
Isn't it something like four of the last eight Illinois Governors have felony convictions? hmmmmm.
Separate names with a comma.
