All my fellow Wire fans should recognize the concept.
As soon as the Breaking News blotter popped up about corruption in IL, you knew it was going to somehow end up on Obama's doorstep whether he was connected or not. Thankfully, Blagojevich pretty much told Obama to fuck off. Obama will still have to answer questions, but should come out clean in this.
But, you also know that Blagojevich wasn't alone. This guy was even trying to get his wife a gig. Who knows how many other people he has gotten bogus jobs? Just how many people were connected in all this and how high up does the corruption go? Will Rod stand tall and go down alone or pull down everyone else involved?
This is really just the tip of the iceberg. Pay for play is not a new concept, but Rod was pretty bold with his. He really seemed to think he could do whatever he wanted. That basically he means he's been doing this for so long that he really felt like he couldn't be stopped.
