BLAGOJEVICH UPDATE

It seems that this is still a national story. What do you know about that? Now that he's been arrested and a criminal complaint has been filed against him, G-Rod's approval rating in Illinois stands at 8%. Who are these 8%? I mean, I assume his wife and kids, plus a Deputy Governor or two, but seriously, who approves of Blago's performance?

For those of you all Facebooky with me, you know that I wondered yesterday whether Winston & Strawn would defend Blago gratis, as they did prisoner George Ryan (a.k.a. Blago's immediate predecessor both as governor, and apparently corrupt hack). The answer to that seems to be a resounding NO, since it was reported today that Blago no longer uses Winston and, in fact, owes them $500,000 for past work. After supposedly eating $20 million defending the last governor, it seems as if Winston should think about whether its Corrupt Politician practice group is really working out.
