Pretty much sums up what most of us already knew. Just when Mayor Daley was touting recent positive events to help secure Olympics to Chicago. Best that he soft-pedal Obama's connection to Chicago out of his promotion as Obama's relationships with the Chicago machine are a little clouded.
Arrested also,was Blago's Chief of Staff Harris. Among the charges are trying to sell Obama's seat to the "highest bidder".
That politics corrupt overlooks the fact that many we elect,were already "corrupted" before they became officeholders. Then seniority takes over and they are off to the races in pursuit of more power and more questionable sources of income.
Plus positioning themselves for cushy positions after they retire from public "service".
