Blagojevich general counsel resigns
Associated Press - December 30, 2008 8:14 PM ET
CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's chief lawyer has quit the administration to go back to private practice.
William Quinlan resigned today as general counsel, a state government job.
Quinlan is the latest top adviser to Blagojevich to resign since the Chicago Democrat was arrested on federal corruption charges earlier this month.
Other recent departures include former chief of staff John Harris, who was arrested along with Blagojevich, and Deputy Gov. Bob Greenlee.
Blagojevich has been accused of trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder. The governor has denied doing anything wrong.

Rats, sinking ship
Yeah, this story is starting to run along the plot line of SCARFACE.

Poor Blago. His real failing is an abiding belief in the subliminal message the media has been promoting that liberal corruption doesn’t matter. He just doesn’t get it. Earth to Blago: there is a double standard within the double standard. The media will generally run interference on a scandal involving a good believing liberal, but not all liberals are equal in the eyes of the liberal media. Remember what the MSM did to Hillary when the Annointed One burst upon the scene? You don’t share the huge ethnicity advantage that shrouded Marion Berry and William Jefferson, and the Annointed One, for that matter. To the MSM, some liberals are clearly more equal than others, and the distinction is obviously skin deep.
