Governor Blagojevich and "pay to play"

This comes our way from Dave McKinney and the Chicago Sun-Times. An excerpt:

2 state officials say gov's fund-raiser helped get jobs

Two members of Gov. Blagojevich's Cabinet acknowledged Wednesday that one of the governor's controversial fund-raisers subpoenaed in a jobs-for-contributions probe helped them land their appointments.

Michael Rumman, director of the troubled Department of Central Management Services, and Brenda Russell, Department of Employment Security director, both said Antoin "Tony'' Rezko urged Blagojevich to hire them.

And that's just the latest from the Maestro of Phony Reform.
