Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was arrested today on charges that he conspired to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama to the highest bidder.
The Governor has been arrested along his Chief of Staff , of course this political scandal is the talk of the media in the States now. It is a political corruption scandal beside of course the attractive Obama factor.
Of course this is the second big major Governor scandal in 2008 in America after the Spitzer scandal â€œStrangely Spitzer for the first time came out publicly and is writing now a financial column in Slate Magazineâ€ .
Why am I interested in all this ?? Well because it is good to see governors getting arrested while they are still in their position !! It is good see that the Governors are well monitored !!??
I spoke before about our governors, I do not want to accuse most of them but I will be modest and say some of them profited from their position in a way or another.
Will the day come in Egypt and we will find that the Administrative control authority presented enough evidence to General prosecutor to issue a warrant against Governor â€œXâ€ for taking bribes from Company â€œYâ€ to pass their pollutant project or from businessman â€œZâ€ to give him the permission on building in an agricultural land !!??
Most if not all our Governors conspired and will continue to conspire with the NDP in the Parliamentary elections. Well they are' appointed by the head of the NDP ,so they know the rules of the game. If they go along with the orders ,they wonâ€™t continue in their position.
I know that this day will come but I do not know when , I just hope it will be very soon â€œI am an optimistic personâ€
