    Blagojevich indicted on federal corruption charges

The 19-count indictment alleges Blagojevich and his aides discussed the possibility he could get a Cabinet post in the new president's administration, substantial fundraising assistance or a high-paying job in exchange for the Senate seat.

    What did he not pay his soical security taxes????

    Did they charge him under RICO? If they did, they anyone who entered his conspiracy at any times, is also guilty of all the charges. This will bring out some seriously dirty laundry in CHicago.

    Time will tell as I said, "Blago had better watch his back" some dirty sh!t is going to come out of all this, if Barry is mixed up in it we will know because strange things will happen.

    Barry is a Chicago Politician and always will be...

    Yea they did charge him under the RICO statute... read the news it is healthier than the steady diet of Worldnet and Newsmax.

    In the immortal words of Sgt. Hulka, "Lighten up Francis" I forgot that the communist do not have a snese of humor. I of all people am not one to critize spelling.

    I was gonna read the Globe, but oops they are getting shut down
