Blagojevich’s Day of Reckoning Arrives

Today, Blagojevich is supposed to testify at the hearing that will decide his fate. As a resident of Illinois, this will be especially interesting after 3 years of waiting, since his arrest in 2008. If Blago is jailed, he will be the fourth Illinois governor to serve jail time and the seventh to be arrested or indicted. In addition, he will be the second governor in a row to be indicted for a federal crime after previous governor George Ryan. I have to love my home state. Can't wait for the decision.
