What's the Matter with Illinois?

There must be something in water down in Springfield. First (former) Illinois Governor George Ryan is investigated and later indicated for his role in raising illegal campaign funds for his governor's campaign. Now the current governor, Rod Blagojevich, is having a grand jury investigate whether his chief fundraiser, Christopher Kelly, traded jobs for campaign contributions. Thank God I moved away from that corrupt cesspool of Illinois and moved to a place where ethics come first, where politicians discuss confidential FBI background checks on judicial nominees that they are not suppose to have access to and close political associates are indicted for accepting illegal campaign contributions.
