Rod Blagojevich Is Bleeping Golden.

IN AMERICA Gov. Rod Blagojevich arrested, charged.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said today that federal authorities arrested Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich today because the governor went on “a political corruption crime spree” that needed to be stopped.

Fitzgerald said secret tape recordings showed Blagojevich was attempting “to sell the U.S. Senate seat” that President-elect Barack Obama recently vacated. The governor has the sole power to pick Obama’s replacement under the state constitution.

“The conduct would make Lincoln roll over in his grave,” Fitzgerald said, quoting Blagojevich as saying the Senate seat is “a bleeping valuable thing. You just don’t give it away….I’ve got this thing and it’s bleeping golden.”
