Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has been arrested on corruption charges the day after he announced he was asking all Illinois government agencies to suspend business with Bank of America
Blagojevich’s arrest seems to be a strong signal that going up against the banksters will not be tolerated. “Blagojevich contended that Bank Of America received More..a multi-billion dollar bailout from the government and should accordingly restore credit to the Republic Windows & Doors company in Chicago,” writes Katharine Zaleski for the Huffington Post.
Last week the workers of Republic Windows & Doors occupied a factory in Chicago after the company closed down and stiffed the workers. “Workers said they were entitled to be given 60 days notice of the closure of the plant and demanded pay for that period as well as any unused vacation time,” the BBC reported.
Blagojevich demanded the Bank of America take “some of that federal tax money that they’ve received and invest it by providing the necessary credit to this company so these workers can keep their jobs.”
