CasesofPoliticalCorruptionintheUS Photo Recently Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was charged with trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama's empty Senate seat. Democratic leaders have called upon the Illinois legislature to schedule a special election as soon as possible rather than to leave the vacant seat in Blagojevich's hands. Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois said, "No appointment by this governor, under these circumstances, could produce a credible replacement" as he suggested the state House and Senate not only establish a special election but do so by a margin that a Blagojevich veto could not overturn.

It's all just very embarrassing. Here is a quiz with other examples of political corruption that has plagued the country at various times. Good Luck and please rate the quiz afterward if you have the chance. In fact, rate early and rate often.
Best wishes,

Nice blend of old and current. I was hoping for a ? re my fave---Lyndon Johnson's Night of the Voting Dead (Box 13). Maybe next time.

Excellent Quiz. You left out Illinois Sec. of State,m, Paul Powell. Upon his death, his secretary discovered shoe boxes containing 800,000 dollars in small bills in his closet.
