This Blagojevich scandal is a big deal. This isn't just a story about personal corruption, but a story about political corruption and campaign finance. Nick Nyhart, president and CEO at Public Campaign has a new post up at Huffington Post about the scandal.
Nick lists a few of the allegations--selling a Senate seat for campaign cash, awarding contracts based on campaign cash, holding funds for sick kids for campaign cash. Gee, there seems to be a pattern.
