This is the best succinct rundown I’ve seen about the arrest of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D). It appears that he was hoping to sell Obama’s Senate seat for campaign contributions, professional positions for himself and his wife, or cold hard cash.

Great quotes highlighted by Politico:

“Unless I get something real good [for Senate candidate 1], s***, I’ll just send myself, you know what I’m saying?”

“the Senate seat ‘is a f***ing valuable thing, you just don’t give it away for nothing.'”
