Our governor has so far managed to hide his problems. Things are a little more public, and shall we say, “earthy”, in Illinois:

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich arrested

Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff John Harris were arrested today by FBI agents on federal corruption charges.

…Updated at 8:57 a.m.: On the issue of the U.S. Senate selection, federal prosecutors alleged Blagojevich sought appointment as Secretary of Health and Human Services in the new Obama administration, or a lucrative job with a union in exchange for appointing a union-preferred candidate…

So much for subtlety…
