I couldn't put this book down. Blago was once my Governor and at one time my Congressman. The book was fascinating in how it uncovered all the nasty stuff behind the scenes and beyond that, provided insight into a man whose inability to keep his mouth shut led to his rise and and also to his downfall. The poor fool was in over his head and didn't even know it. I really don't pity him though since refusing to recognize that you're a crook and an incompetent doesn't minimize the damage you're doing.
