Governor George Ryan

Former Gov. Jim Edgar, holding the distinction being of one of the three governors not arrested for corruption in the last forty years, made this point:

Edgar said Blagojevich’s arrest probably hurt George Ryan’s chances of winning a pardon.

“It’s probably less likely today,” he said. “I personally believe that Gov. Ryan has paid a pretty good price. His reputation has been ruined,” and he’s essentially broke. He said Ryan’s crime “pales in comparison” to what Blagojevich has been charged with.


I say, Ditto.
