Blagojevich legacy

Posted by wlpo on December 11, 2011

The aftershocks of Rod Blagojevich’s corruption and dishonesty will reverberate in Illinois and cloud
its reputation long after the disgraced governor reports to prison. Experts say reforms implemented after the scandal of a governor trying to auction off a U.S. Senate seat should prevent some
corruption. But there may also be a power shift to legislative leaders and independent political groups. State government is still swimming in rough economic waters left in the wake of debt and budget gimmickry dating back to Blagojevich, who was sentenced to 14 years in prison this week. Still, advocates say Illinois has one of the best records for providing health care to the young because of Blagojevich’s policies.
