Source: Feds take Gov. Blagojevich into custody

You have got to be kidding me? Please tell me this isn't for real. Indications are that yesterday he was talking all tough about the federal investigations only to find himself in custody this morning. I mean WOW!!!

Hat-tip Second City Cop.

ADDITION: You know I'm thinking that this is a good reason to take him down, NOW!
Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff John Harris were arrested today by FBI agents on federal corruption charges.

Blagojevich and Harris were accused of a wide-ranging criminal conspiracy that included Blagojevich conspiring to sell or trade the Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama in exchange for financial benefits for the governor and his wife. The governor was also accused of obtaining campaign contributions in exchange for other official actions.

Blagojevich was taken into federal custody at his North Side home this morning.
Heh, the CapFax actually has copy and pasted a press release from the US Attorney! Scroll down and look for 8:45 AM.

EXTRA ADDITION: This news is SO HUGE that access to the CapFax blog is a bit spotty. That blog is getting a lot of traffic because of this.

I was having trouble posting this comment over there. I think it's funny...

“Yesterday took part in a sit in, today sitting in jail. I can’t help but wonder what’s going through his head today…”

I’m innocent?
