The LuLac Edition #663, Dec. 10th, 2008



In an incredible ending to the year in politics, the Obama Senate seat wound up for sale in his state of Illinois. The Governor, who bears a striking resemblance to the Kay Keyser band member Ish Kabibble, has been accused and arrested for trying to sell the Senate seat to the highest bidder. llinois lawmakers were quickly moving to take the decision of who will replace President-elect Barack Obama in the Senate out of the hands of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested on federal conspiracy charges Tuesday.
The 17th Amendment to the Constitution allows governors to fill vacant Senate seats, but politicians from both sides of the aisle have said it would be unacceptable for Blagojevich to choose Obama's successor. "No appointment by this governor under these circumstances could produce a credible replacement," said Sen. Dick Durbin, Illinois' sole senator at the moment. Blagojevich was arrested Tuesday on federal conspiracy charges. In the complaint against Blagojevich, federal prosecutors said he conspired to pressure possible candidates for campaign contributions and other benefits. The Illinois General Assembly will begin a special session on Monday to consider legislation that would create a special election to fill Obama's seat until 2010.
Politics in Illinois always had a reputation for corruption. Under the Daley administration of the 50s, 60s and 70s it was virtually institutionalized. But the guys kept it under wraps and weren’t stupid enough to flaunt it. This incident sets the bar so low for stupidity and corruption, that people engaging in the political process will be hard pressed to match it.

I believe he also looks like Eric Statton "Otter" of Animal House fame.

At a trial, could you imagine the people mumbling "bj"!
