54. Fitzgerald, incompetent or corrupt?
Incompetence or corruption are the only classification of Fitzgerald. "I had to prevent a crime!" is not his job. The governor, sleaze ball that he is, was elected by the people of Illinois. A US attorney has no right to preemptively arrest a governor.

Why didn't Fitzgerald just catch Blago in the act of appointing a Senator for money? Apparently Harry Reid doesn't have to allow Burris to be seated, so there is no way the Senate had to allow an appointee caught in the act of bribing the governor to be seated.

This guy Fitzgerald is a complete and utter ass-clown. Fuckup. Or he is just a complete rethuglican political hack.

Blago is going to get off because he committed no crime (well the hair is not a FEDERAL crime and neither is being an asshole.) No money changed hands, nobody even offered any! No quid pro quo, thus, no crime.

I've been underwhelmed by Fitzgerald since his lame prosecution of the Plame case and this latest fiasco is the clincher. What a maroon.
