"I have watched in disbelief at the arrogance of power demonstrated by Governor Rod Blagojevich in recent days. He has been under an ethical cloud for many months now and continues to behave like a kid in a candy store when it comes to seeking personal gain in his government position," Anuzis said in a statement today. "Republican and Democrats must together say ‘enough is enough.' Politicians who abuse their position, like Blagojevich, have slowly eroded the American people's faith in their democracy. And the Service Employees International Union, which has been a party to the Chicago ‘Pay to Play' game, should conduct a thorough investigation as well. The actions of these corrupt individuals bring shame, not only on their party and their union, but on their country. I hope that all those involved, from Blagojevich, to the 'pay-to-play' Union bosses, to the potential Senate candidates that participated, and even those connected to the Obama administration, will be fully investigated and their role in this corruption determined. It is not enough to say ‘we told him no.' Selling an appointment to the U.S. Senate is a criminal act and his actions should have been reported to law enforcement by SEIU officials."
