Rod Blagojevich, freed by Trump pardon, leaves Colorado prison, returns to Illinois
The fact of the matter is US Senate Seats in Illinois have been up for sale by the corrupt Chicago Democratic Party political machine for decades. Mike Madigan, Illinois Speaker of the House and most corrupt politician in Illinois since Richard J. Daley, got pissed when Blago stepped in behind the scenes and tried to sell it without machine permission. Madigan had wisely got his daughter Lisa elected Attorney General so who's going to investigate his crimes? Also, who could they get to initiate an investigation and then tip the fed and cooperate with them to get the Governor? Whole thing was a corrupt Chicago Democratic pissing match.

I'm sure other people have started threads on this, but here goes.

You really don't know much about Illinois politics, do you?

I don't have a big problem with commuting Blago's sentence, because he's already served 8 years and the even more corrupt George Ryan (Republican) served only 6. His corruption actually GOT PEOPLE KILLED>

I looked and found no other post. Time marches on and this is an old political story. Letterman used to make jokes about Blago, that's how far pop-media has pushed it to the back page. But do you agree Democratic Party political machine in Chicago is corrupt?

This kind of corruption is part of why Bernie leads Trump in all polls.

Bernie is not from Chicago and we elect our President by state. I hope Bernie is the nominee. Trump will crush socialism and Marxism.

Of course you're referring to Ricardo Guzman, a truck driver who barely spoke English. He had received his truck license by bribing officials who worked under then George Ryan Secretary of State.

The non-English speaking immigrant Guzman caused a wreck in Milwaukee, that killed a couple.

Don't Pardon George Ryan

So how is that any worse than these Democrat-controlled states and cities that are hooking up illegals with drivers licenses? Will you also hold them accountable for the deaths of others, or is this just a Trump thing with you?

Trump granted seven pardons and four commutations. All were for high profile people. Seems like there should be some average Joes pardoned too.

Trump did a solid personal favor for some friends and big donors. Just another terribly corrupt action to add to the list of why he is the worst president ever.

How much did Blagojevich donate to the Trump campaign? It must have been $ millions.

That just goes to show you that even in prison, you can make lots of money.

Is this a great country or what?

Well, to start with, it wasn't just Guzman. There were dozens of crashes by people who bribed their way to licenses.

Second, Undocumented Immigrants who get driver's licenses still have to pass tests. The problem with George Ryan was that he was giving CDL's to people who couldn't pass the test.

That's why what he did was worse.

How despicable, How dare he charge those poor wetbacks. Let's just give them licenses for free.

Blago was blatantly corrupt. He was tried and convicted.

There are no mitigating circumstances

Amazing that Trump cultists have no problem with this

Blago is a Blue State Illinois Democrat. I'm more amazed that you cultists have no problem with that.

Well, not really "amazed." I fibbed a little. :21:

I do. Blago is a Dimm. He should have served his full sentence.

Trump pardons a Dimm? What a shitty dictator.

Actually the extermination of all of these people involved would be a good by product of a revolution. We have become what we had a revolution against. Its been here but the taxes were much lower many decades ago then today. A dictator here would need to show those governed some positives. And that would be one. No relationship to any of the corrupted and power families throughout the land would be a must.

I'm looking at police officers caught up in the Black Lives Matter hysteria.

BTW I was involved in Democratic politics in Illinois for too fucking long. Got disgusted with what I saw. Strictly GOP now. Emile Jones was a piece of shit too.

Like the Clintons, Bidens, and Bloombergs?

China loves them some of them. They're the best buddies the Chinese could ever hope for.
