Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is in federal custody on corruption charges, a law enforcement official said Tuesday.
According to the statement, Blagojevich is alleged to have discussed obtaining:
--a substantial salary for himself at either a non-profit foundation or an organization affiliated with labor unions;
--a spot for his wife on paid corporate boards, where he speculated she might garner as much as $150,000 a year;
--promises of campaign funds -- including cash up front;
--a Cabinet post or ambassadorship for himself.
I think this guy should relocate to naija after serving his jail term - he'll rise to the top in no time!
