File: View the Criminal Complaint Against Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich

By now you've probably heard about Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich being arrested early this morning by the FBI.

Things have gotten strange in Chicago lately, what with Blago's alleged corruption finally imploding, the Tribune Company filing for bankruptcy protection and the perrennial losers, those Chicago Cubs, going after some big talent for '09.

One jokester has even put President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. Senate seat on eBay, a riff on how Blagojevich was offering to appoint Obama's successor in exchange for political favors.

The whole mess is outlined in this criminal complaint, obtained by the Chicago Tribune.
