Mrs. Blagojevich Fired

If Governor Rod Blagojevich is kicked out of office, it at least looks like he'll have someone to keep him company while he searches for a new job: His wife, Patricia, has been fired from her job as a fundraiser for a Chicago homeless agency. The Chicago Christian Industrial League confirmed to the Chicago Tribune yesterday that Blagojevich has been fired, though would not say "why the board fired Blagojevich because it is a personnel issue." Blagojevich made almost $100,000 a year from the financially strapped organization.
