Quantcast

Well I just tried to find out how many U.S. Governors ever went to jail but all I got were the four from Illinois. Anybody know the answer?

    I live in Illinois - it is the dirtiest state, politically, in the union. Of the four governors incarcerted (Blago will be, I would say) three were Democrats and the one Republican, George Ryan, was a death penalty hating RINO. He was a POS closet-liberal-to-moderate-type but ran as a Republican just to fight the Chicago Machine. Plus, let's not forget all of the DEmocratic judges that went down in Operations Graylord and Operation Silver Shovel and our ol' buddy Dan Rostenkowski, the greediest thief of 'em all. They made Tricky Dick Nixon almost look like a choir boy - hehe.

    I wonder why SHCs have so much trouble doing research. Is there some kind of Foxnews syndrome going around?

    Thanks for the information there:

    North Carolina Governor William Woods Holden (R) was impeached for the actions of the North Carolina militia in trying to quell the lynching activities of the Ku Klux Klan in what became the Kirk-Holden war. He was the first state governor ever removed from office. (1870) [228]

    Oh I saw that right off but I didn't want to plow through page after page of info...just looking (or hoping) for a quick list just on governors.

    I don;t know, but I bet there's a lot more than that... as well as alot more that should have gone to jail but didn't because of their "status"...

    Oh no doubt...history is bound to have them. I found a few here and there but so far Illinois seems to be the poster child of corruption in the governors office.

    Try Massachusetts... Look at Ted Kennedy [Senator, of course, not Governor]... I'm real curious about some of the MA Governor's and other pol's... Look at Bulger... Raymond and his brother Whitey... Raymond wasn't Governator either, but a MA pol just the same...

    Chicago continues to elect the crooked ass governors of this state. 102 counties in Illinois and cook county alone determines the future for the rest of the state. The state is totally BROKE, most of this or at 90% was the exact cause of Blago. The state will go into bankruptcy right along with California before long and still the present Dem. Gov. sits on his ass doing nothing like they all have, waiting for new orders from Chicago, hometown of the POTUS. Now our country is being run just like the state of Illinois has been run ! Chicago politics taught Obama everything he knows !

    Well I was trying to find how many governors in other states went down for the count. I didn't want to pin the worst of the worst entirely on Illinois but so far, looks like they're going to get the blue ribbon.
