Of course, I suppose I could have just said "Democrat" and the corruption and cheating would be taken for response, all liberals can do is "groan"...:rolleyes:

Late Tuesday, prosecutors filed a 169-page response to Rod Blagojevichs' corruption conviction appeal urging the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reject the imprisoned former governors' request for a new trial.

Defense lawyers filed an appeal on the Democrats' behalf in July.

It asks the Chicago-based appellate court to toss his convictions or at least reduce his 14-year prison sentence.

In 2011, jurors convicted the 56-year-old former governor of engaging in wide-ranging corruption. That included seeking to profit from his power to appoint someone to the Senate seat that Barack Obama vacated when he became president.
