Its Fitzmas!

Only I don’t think this is what the nutroots had in mind when they were talking about Fitzgerald and indictments:

Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested by FBI agents on federal corruption charges Tuesday morning.

In one charge related to the appointment of a senator to replace Barack Obama, prosecutors allege that Blagojevich sought appointment for himseld as Secretary of Health and Human Services in the new Obama administration, or a lucrative job with a union, in exchange for appointing a union-preferred candidate.

Another charge alleges Blagojevich and Harris conspired to demand the firing of Chicago Tribune editorial board members responsible for editorials critical of him in exchange for state help with the sale of Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs baseball stadium owned by Tribune Co.

Name that Party!  Well, the gov is a Democrat of course.  If he were a Republican it would be in the first line of the story.

Lots of fun stuff is going to be coming out of this one.

Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!
