What will be the first action taken by Barak Obama when he moves into the White House? His first act will be to fire all the federal prosecutors as Clinton did so that he can stop U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald’s investigation which may taint himself or Rahm Emanual. It would be a way to halt any potential link to the "President Elect" to the corruption cesspool that is Illinois politics.
Bill Clinton was under investigation by one of the U.S. Attorneys in Arkansas when he was inaugurated and still fired them. The Senate was under the control of the Democrats at the time so senators weren’t going to complain.
So don’t look for any connection to be discovered connecting the “office of the President Elect” (yuk, yuk) and selling his senate seat. Just one more hypocrisy from the socialistic office of Obama.
