Fran Drescher may want to make discretion the key word in her bid for Hillary Clinton’s New York Senate seat. Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was arrested Tuesday morning on corruption charges stemming from his selection of Barack Obama’s Senate successor. A federal investigation alleges that Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, sought campaign contributions and other money in exchange for Obama’s vacant seat and various government jobs and contracts. Prosecutors say Blagojevich was willing to appoint a senatorial candidate backed by unions in order to get a cushy union job or an appointment as Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services. Apparently, doing the honorable thing isn’t always appealing.
