Blagojevich Accused of Trying to Sell Obama's Seat

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) has been arrested on charges of trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat. From the AP:

A 76-page FBI affidavit said the 51-year-old Democratic governor was intercepted
on court-authorized wiretaps over the last month conspiring to sell or trade the vacant Senate seat for personal benefits for himself and his wife, Patti.

The charges say he tried to wrangle a hefty salary for himself and for his wife on various boards.

Didn't former Illinois Rep. Dan Rostenkowski (D-IL) get in trouble for NOT paying for some seats in Congress?
