Indignity upon indignity has been heaped upon our one-time Governor, Rod "They're Out To Get Me" Blagojevich. And now one more link has been added to his Marley chain burden. The state legislature is refusing to pay for the oil painting of Blago to hang in the hall of governors in Springfield.
SAY IT AIN'T SO!
Of course, Rod is certainly free to pay for the portrait himself, but the state's politicos decided in an 85-23 vote last week that the state would not pay for the sitting.
The Senate-bound bill does not ban an ousted governor from bankrolling the project out of pocket, which could cost as much as $25,000, the bill's top backer said.
Oh, the humanities. Poor Rod. The dude can't catch a break... of course, there's that whole he-deserves-it thing, too!
