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.
