Officials in Barack Obama's home state yesterday moved to remove a scandal-tainted governor, three days after he was accused of trying to sell the president-elect's old seat in the Senate.
Blagojevich has defied calls to step down from Obama and others since Tuesday when the FBI revealed it had wiretaps of the governor soliciting campaign contributions and cabinet posts in return for filling the Senate seat.
Blagojevich will not go down without a fight, and as a Chicago politician , knows (perhaps, literally) where the bodies are buried.
This tangle of corruption will, most probably, lead back to Obama in a disturbingly tangible way.
It will be interesting if he is able, like the Clintons were at the time of Vince Foster's "suicide", to somehow shake this off this scandal and walk away relatively unscathed.
But with the fact that many people are turning away from corporate media in droves, I would like to hope that will not be the case in this instance, if there is concrete evidence that Obama was part of this.
