16 Felony Charges For Ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich

Ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich can add racketeering, wire fraud, lying to federal investigators, and extortion conspiracy charges to his resume, which also includes impeachment and appearances on David Letterman and The View.

The 16 felony charges include his scheme to sell President Obama's senate seat. His fundraising brother and two chiefs of staff were also entangled in his hairnet and charged in the indictment issued today by a federal grand jury.

Blagojevich could spend years in jail if he's convicted. Regardless of the outcome, it appears we'll be seeing more of the man.

19 charges, but I think 3 of them are for people who are not Blago.Remember when he was going to appoint the Senator, and people said that we should just let him do it because he wasn't charged with anything yet and people were assuming too much? I think people made fun of Fitzgerald, saying that he had a weak case because all they shared at that time were portions of the tapes? Can we learn from this and recognize that it takes a little while to get massive amounts of corruption charges put together?
