More Ryan trial stuff...

I really like this paragraph that started today's Sun-Times article on George Ryan's guilty verdict...
George H. Ryan Sr., the 39th governor of Illinois, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and the emancipator of Death Row, is now a convicted felon.
Now that's got to hurt right. It just hit me, perhaps the jurors have gotten tired of this corruption. It seems like open season on those individuals in government who simply are nothing more than greedy for money, power, and influence. Only time will tell on that.

I have one more quote...

Chicago FBI chief RobertGrant said he hoped the Ryan verdict would put an end to "political prostitution" in Illinois. "It underscores again that in this country, in this democracy, there is no one above the law," Grant said. "No matter who you are, no matter where your station may be in public service you're held accountable."

I'm really surprised that he got convicted on all counts...

If they prosecuted him, all politicians should be prosecuted...
