Something's Shocking

I don't consider myself naive. But I saw this and my jaw dropped and I did a literal double take and I had to read it several times before it sank in:
Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich of Illinois was arrested on Tuesday morning and charged with corruption, including an allegation that he conspired to profit from his authority to appoint President-elect Barack Obama's successor in the United States Senate, prosecutors said.
Really? It's like they aren't even trying to uphold any semblance of propriety any more. Might as well put it up on eBay or Craigslist: "Senate seat for sale. $500,000 or best offer." Another great big "fuck you" from our elected officials.
