Governor Blagojevich arrested.

I saw today all over the news that Governor Rod Blagojevich of Illinios was arrested. For corruption.
The governor was arrested at his home Tuesday on charges he conspired to sell or trade President-elect Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat to the highest bidder.
Of course, they never mention his political party affiliation, so we're tasked with guessing if he's a Republican or a Democrat.

To say that Rod Blog is anti-gun would be a masterpiece of understatement. So, imagine my surprise to see this line buried in the story. Bold words are mine.
He was released on a signature bond that specifies that he'll forfeit $4,500 bond if he doesn't appear in court. Blagojevich also was ordered to relinquish his passport and his firearm owner's identification car(d).
So, we wonder, what an anti-gun governor is doing with a firearms owners identification card? Corruption is one thing, but hypocrisy is something else. The man is slime, and now he's toast.

The Smoking Gun is all over this and has what is touted as the criminal complaint filed by the FBI. It's good stuff.

I wonder who the new Senator from Illinois will be? I wonder if he or she will have a firearms owners identification card.
