Chicago Sun-Times reporter Natasha Korecki followed every step of Blagojevichs downfall.
She details his demise in a new book Only in Chicago: How the Rod Blagojevich Scandal Engulfed Illinois; Embroiled Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, and Jesse Jackson, Jr.; and Enthralled the Nation.
The book raises the question of whether Jesse Jackson Jr., the congressman son of the famed civil rights leader, plotted to arrange a pardon for Blagojevich from President Barack Obama.

Since Blago was unable to sell Obama’s Senate seat, does Barack get to keep the deposit?
Looks good, will finish reading it in the AM. One thing that’s occurred to me is a recurrance of some northern straing of Arkancide, especially with JJ Jr. in a hospital where you know, sometimes meds get mixed up and all. Heck, he was just trying to carry on the family business of extortion and all...
If this were the Clintons, I’d suspect JJ Jr isn’t really bipolar at all but he’s being held in captivity somewhere until he agrees never to reveal what he knows. I’m not sure the Obama goons are that clever.
Long hospital stay expected.
“Since Blago was unable to sell Obamas Senate seat, does Barack get to keep the deposit?”
Good question :)
Blago is going to walk out on Jan 21, 2013, and Romney isn't gonna do $hit to stop it. Before you say he can't, how about the day after he's elected, he promises to indict AND JAIL AS A FLIGHT RISK, EVERY ONE INVOLVED?
It will provoke a race riot, and we can start shooting traitors...
If I'm going to be called a racist, regardless, I might as well work to earn it...
I learned during the Clinton years that many, if not most on the left only care about ‘winning’, pushing forth their personal agendas, and hurting/punishing those they resent (i.e. anyone who does better than them). They admire those on their side who can ‘get over’ on the system and not get caught. They admired that Clinton was teflon, and could have cared less if he had twenty interns he was having relations with in the White House, or if it was commonly known that he had offed someone they didn't like - as long as he didn't get caught.
The Chicago Way of doing business.
You’re going to love this!!!
We cant raise that, Nayak said he told Jackson. It didnt matter, Jackson told Nayak; tell Blagojevich that anyway.....Dumb honkey will take whatever he can steal.
I think that Jesse Jr. is in the hospital specifically so he cannot be interviewed in the run-up to the election by a reporter who may stray off the reservation. It’s a courtesy to him and his family as opposed to the other ways to quiet folks. Rod got the message the relatively easy way as well...
he ran to the hospital knowing this book was coming out. He just might get prosecuted when his cover is voted out of office.
Bipolar disorder? Or fear of a Federal indictment and being forced to testify against Osama Obama to save his *own* sorry a$$? Boys and girls,we just might have the 21st Century’s “Webb Hubbell”.
It reminds me of the former Soviet Union were many prominent political dissidents were placed in mental institutions (those who could not be murdered outright) for disagreeing with the party.
During Jackson’s lengthy hospitalization, his Congressional office released virtually no information on his medical condition or whereabouts for weeks on end. The news about his treatment took a long time to surface in the press.
