SJ-R.COM - How state hires is raising questions -- Governor promised clean government
It's not even so much that this is unusual for the Blagojevich administration, but I'd like people to read this article and take a look at the format. It's set up much like the FAQ lists that dominate the Internet. It's clean, easy to read, and oddly enough seems like the article is less biased than normal.
Now, knowing all of this, we see that Rod Blagojevich is not much better than the guy he replaced. I remember seeing a lot of State workers rejoicing in the fact that Ol' Blaggie was electable compared to George Ryan. Well, it doesn't look like the Democrats ushered in a new era of good government. It looks like they just changed a few nameplates and left the system as is.
This is what I've missed from living in Chicago's suburbs. I've missed the spectator sport that is state politician-spotting.
