Blagojevich and wife need some better friends


The Governor and his wife need better friends


55-year-old Anita Mahajan, an affluent, educated businesswoman, was grimly preparing to meet her lawyer and surrender to authorities who would lock her up in a cell overnight until she could make bail.
Mahajan, whose company had a no-bid contract to do drug testing for the Department of Children and Family Services, is charged with defrauding the state of $2.1 million. If convicted, she faces significant penitentiary time.

She is the latest shoe to drop in what seems like a never-ending series of federal and state investigations of the Blagojevich administration. What makes Mahajan's story of more than passing interest is that she and her husband, Amrish, not only have donated $40,000 to the governor, but they have also used Patti Blagojevich as their real estate broker, resulting in $113,000 in commissions for the first lady in 2006. Not to mention that Amrish Mahajan, a bank president in Harvey, has financial ties to Antoin "Tony" Rezko, the governor's former close friend and biggest fund-raiser. Rezko was federally indicted last year, charged with a scheme to defraud the state pension system.

The day following both Mahajan's arrest and the governor's state budget address, Blagojevich hit the road to sell his plan, to take his case, in his words, "to the people."

    Poor kitty shouldn't be associated with Gov. Baloneybitch.

    That guy is an embarassment to the Democrats.

    Just wait, he thinks he can run for president in 2012 (if he isn't indicted first!).

    Baloneybitch.. LOL! I was going to type that. Nightowl used to called the governor of Illnois Baloneybitch!

    Sigh... Anita Mahajan.. Chicago got more corrupted officials and crimes. There are more crimes than the times I go to the bathroom! He is an embarrassment as a governor no matter what political party. I look for Baloneybitch to be next to be indicted.

    That's my brother's cat Frosty. But Pat Quinn our Lt. Governor is so far clean, and Blagojevich got voted in because people like Pat Quinn. Patty Blagojevich's Dad is longtime 33rd Ward Alderman, Dick Mell. Everyone is related to everyone somehow. And Rezko's name keeps coming up again and again.

    Your city sounds like mob city..

    "Everyone is related to everyone somehow."

    Pretty scary...

    I would vote for Pat Quinn for governor.

    Biloxi--BaloneyBitch's own father-in-law, Dick Mell, filed a lawsuit against him. I never heard what became of that. I bet that was a happy Christmas!
