It's Unseemly For The United States Of America To Be Represented To The World By A Chicago Politician

The Chicago Tribune reports on the apparent suicide of Christopher Kelly, a Chicago wheeler-dealer recently sentenced to eight years in prison, and under much pressure from Patrick Fitzgerald to testify against Rod Blagojevich (and who knows who else):

After Blagojevich was elected in 2002, both Kelly and fellow fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko became the governor's most trusted advisers. But Blagojevich often made clear that of the two, he was closest with Kelly, who in the administration's early days had a hand in everything from cabinet appointments to gambling issues.

Having lived in Chicago for 18 years, I just think it's unseemly for the United States of America to be represented to the world by a Chicago politician.
