    Wow he brought a lot of shame to the great state of Illinois but even I think that a little harsh. Though I'm not surprised.

    Good. Get the hell outta my state and stay out, you corrupt piece of shit. We're sick of you people giving us a bad name. This has been a long time coming, pal.

    In my country 15 to 25 years in prison, is what you get for murder... I don't think that much time is fair for corruption or whatever (meh, I didn't really read the whole thing since I'm using the dark theme and it's hard to read)

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    14 years is a little harsh for a non-violent crime. : O

    I got to listen to my friend telling me what this guy was doing to their state for years. Just desserts, I say.

    White collar crimes do significantly more damage to a much wider range of people than a simple violent crime against one person. The news never talks about them so nobody knows. The punishments are usually so weak that they have no reason NOT to commit the crimes (ie embezzling over $100,000,000, then being fined 15-20,000,000 for it).
