Illinois corruption deepens?

Attorney for Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. says his client is likely 'Senate Candidate 5' in the complaint against Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

He is (for now) a U.S. Representative. Hopefully this will get traced back to a bunch of the crooked Democrats, and we get some of the trash out of Washington.

I haven't had a chance to follow this very closely. Are there tapes with these senate candidates being involved criminally with the Governor?

Yes, the FBI has been wiretapping his phone calls. December 4th was when candidate #5 agreed to offer "something up front" They've been watching him since at least October.

300 hours of taped phone calls. So far, about 4 1/2 minutes of bad stuff that's been released. Local newspapers know more than they are releasing due to an "understanding" with the FBI.

Could be bad for Obama as well. Nov. 21st, his press aide had a press conf. and talked about the conversation between obama and the govenor. Now that aide released a statment today saying he was misinformed, and they didn't talk about who to appoint. lol

Newbies, please watch THIS before posting.

there will be deals to keep some things hush hush and get this out of the spotlight.bet your ass on that.

watch the news fade away from it before you hear the good parts.

washington and the media are so predictable now.

how long are we going to take this shit.

america needs to wake up and speak out in big numbers to be heard.until this happens we will all be railroaded.if we do this and still get railroaded i think it would be time to get it on.

reps/dems both play the same games.notice they are all buddy buddy cfr members.

we've been had for to long.

Obama coming out of nowhere and beating Alan Keyes after a great Republican senator retired should have raised some flags. Note: they guy Obama replaced (Peter Fitzgerald) is who insisted on appointing an out of state US attorney, who in turn put the last governor in prison and is probably putting the current governor in a cell right next to the old one.

As long as Patrick Fitzgerald is a US attorney the criminals are going to get prosecuted. Of course Obama can fire him at will and probably wouldn't catch any flack at all for it.

Have to agree that this could conievably cut deeply. And sadly that it will likely be deep sixed with a quickness...
