Holder, Blago, Richardson: Triangle of Sleaze
A rough week for the Obama administrations corruptocracy.
It was a rough week for the corruptocracy. White House officials better ho-ho-hold on tight because the sleigh ride isnt going to get any smoother.
On Wednesday, disgraced former governor Rod Blagojevich (D., Ill.) received a 14-year prison sentence for scheming to sell Pres. Barack Obamas Senate seat, along with several other pay-to-play schemes. Blago played the distressed daddy for the federal judge, invoking his young daughters and wife (who held her notoriously foul tongue in check) to bemoan how his life is in ruins.
How far Blagos fallen from the glory days of 2008, when he was gloating at the prospect of naming a candidate to fill then-President-elect Obamas seat. Ive got this thing, and its f**king golden, he crowed. All that glitters now, though, are the paparazzi flash bulbs that Blago faces on his perp walks.
Earlier this week, Bill Richardson, former Democratic governor of New Mexico, disgraced former presidential candidate, and failed Obama Commerce Secretary nominee, faced new reports of a federal grand jury looking into his possible violations of campaign-finance laws. The funny-money business is tied to an alleged mistress payoff a la disgraced former presidential candidate and senator John Edwards (D., N.C.).
Additionally, the Wall Street Journal reports, investigators are probing how Richardsons close allies steered more than $2 billion of public money into investment funds run by money managers who in turn agreed to pay millions of dollars in consulting fees to high-profile Democratic fundraisers and other supporters of Richardson.
The star that joined together this little constellation of sleaze? Disgraced U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

More like a square if you add Corzine...
Bingo!! I have not heard ONE word about what Richardson has done....what is it?, something about money....or women??
oops....forgot to read the article!! BUT I have NOT heard one word on the news about this!!
It’s an n-tangle. Daley, JJJr, JF’n(Who’s your daddy?)J, AxleShaft, TurbanDurban, etc, etc., etc.
The triangle will be much larger hopefully by the time we boot this affirmative action loser out the door but he will pardon all his clown posse in the end.
Blago could easily bring down the Obama presidency, but the hope of a pardon will keep him quiet.
