That's what I hear. Which is kind of interesting also, because we have two perfect instances of corrupt Democrats from Chicago: Rob Blagojevich and Roland Burris; but they're seen as aberrations and not representative of Democrats or liberals in general.
If these were all Republicans, then these two men would be used as "proof" that all Republicans are corrupt and that Obama and Raum Emanuel are corrupt as well.
Again, a blatant double standard.
