Big Illinois News On Election Night

CHICAGO (AP) — Even Illinois voters jaded by a never-ending stream of political advertisements must have been startled to see one familiar politician pop up in a new TV commercial.

It's Rod Blagojevich.

But the big-haired former governor isn't pushing for votes. He's plugging pistachios.

The 15-second ad is for Wonderful Pistachios and spins off Blagojevich's legal troubles. He's been convicted of lying to the FBI and will be retried on other corruption charges.

The commercial that first aired Sunday shows Blagojevich opening a briefcase full of pistachios and eating one. A voiceover says about how he eats pistachios that, "Rod Blagojevich does it innocently."

In a press release Monday, Blagojevich says the briefcase's contents are like the allegations against him. He says, "they're nuts."

Leave it to our convicted felon former governor to provide additional embarrassment to Illinois. Cannot wait until you become Bubba's bitch, Blago.
