I first met Rod Blagojavich the day after he was elected as Governor of Illinois. This image is a scan from film that I took back on Nov. 5th 2002.

On December 9, 2008, Blagojevich was arrested by federal law enforcement agents and charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud as well as solicitation of bribery. The Justice Department complaint alleges that the governor conspired to commit several "Pay to Play" schemes, including attempting to sell President-elect Barack Obama's vacated United States Senate seat to the highest bidder. United States Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald described the corruption as "the most staggering crime spree in office I have ever seen".] Under Illinois law, Gov. Blagojevich will retain full executive authority as Governor through January 2011 unless he resigns or is impeached by the Illinois House and is tried, convicted and removed from office by the Illinois Senate.

Glad we never became friends :)
