Does here anyone really think they're putting Rod Blagojevich in prison for corruption and "pay for play?" Do you think any governor, given the opportunity to name a US Senator would not want someone who is either a contributor, a political ally, or someone who can influence contributors in his own favor? Most politicans are not mega millionaires or billionaires. Even Michael Bloomberg, who bought three terms as NYC mayor gets down with the corrupt, and he doesn't even have to! Blagojevich fought Bank of America on behalf of low wage union workers:
Blagoevich fought so that every child in Illinois, and every family making less than $82,000 have health insurance.
Rod Blagoevich got free transit for senior citizens http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2011-06-28/news/chi-blago-through-adversity-can-come-good-things-20110628_1_blagojevich-verdict-corruption-charges-adversity
Blagojevich tried to beat Big Pharma by importing medications for the people of Illinois from Canada, where medications costs as much as fifty percent less than they do in the USA.
Bloomberg, who says the thug NYPD is his private army, threw over $600 million to a well connected firm. This thug is being set up, like his mentor and employee Edward I Koch, another world historically corrupt NY Mayor, to be an esteemed "elder statesman" and possibly a Kingmaker in 2012. While Rod Blagoevich's little kids have to be told that their father, who fought for the 99 is going to jail for being a crook. http://www.google.com/#hl=en&cp=6&gs_id=2x&xhr=t&q=mayor+bloomberg+scandals&pf=p&sclient=psy-ab&source=hp&pbx=1&oq=mayor+bloomberg+scandals&aq=0j&aqi=g-j1&aql=&gs_sm=&gs_upl=&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=6bf6cbb9bc5ad362&biw=1034&bih=532
