The third former Illinois governor in the past three decades to be convicted of federal felonies was sentenced today.
George Ryan (#41 Republican 1999-2003) was convicted of corruption for steering state contracts and leases.
Dan Walker (#38 Democrat 1973-1977) was convicted of corruption involving bank loans.
Otto Kerner (#35 Democrat 1961-1968) was found guilty in a racing-stock scandal.
It's a little out of my area but, given all of the heat we have taken over the "corruption" hereabouts I thought this might be interesting to note.
