Rod Blogoyevich took his last ride in the aircraft designated for the Governor of Illinois yesterday. Just before he was removed as governor, the phone rang and he said, “I’ll tell you what. I’m not jumping out. Not for those people, no way. I don’t like heights.”
So ended one of the wild chaperts in Illinois and Chicago politics.
Today, at the state house in Illinois, Blago is just a bad memory.
A worker replaces ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s picture with that of Pat Quinn.
Maybe Blago is dead meat as a politician and maybe he is just starting as an “American Idol” or celebrity.
He said to the media, “You’ll keep covering me if I have anything to say, won’t you?”
