This isn't really news or even slightly surprising, but our great state, Lincolnland, although one columnist calls this Madiganistan after the guy who really runs things, has another former governor going to prison. This shouldn't come as a surprise even to Bag-o-chips himself; no one ever liked him, he didn't do very well as governor, and no one ever believed him, so testifying on hisr own behalf must been an extremely desperate strategy. This is becoming almost a tradition for governors with 5 of the last 8 convicted of something. As John Stewart put it, "If you're in a room with 2 or more former governors of Lincolnland, you can be pretty sure the room is in a prison." Generally speaking they do less damage in prison and the cost to the tax payers is about the same although often the terms are a bit longer.
