Public Office.

It would appear that Barack Obama's election as the next President of the United States is having consequences for American politics well beyond those that were expected. Only in Chicago ... but at least Perseident Elect Obama has managed to stay out of the windy city's latest political scandal ... so far.

"US prosecutors have charged Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich with trying to sell the Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama. Mr Blagojevich, as governor, has sole authority to select a successor to Mr Obama as junior Illinois senator. FBI investigators said telephone intercepts showed he was trying to sell or trade the seat for personal benefit."
