Connect the dots?

Did Bank of America call in it's globalist thugs? You be the judge.

Soon after the Governor of Illinois did this...
In a stinging note of support for the laid off workers that have taken up residency in Chicago's Republic Windows & Doors factory, the Governor of Illinois has suspended business with Bank of America until it reissues credit to the shuttered company.
... he was arrested.
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was unexpectedly taken into federal custody Tuesday morning.

It's unclear exactly why Blagojevich was detained at his Chicago home, although reports indicate it may be related to his alleged involvement in a pay-for-play corruption scheme.
Fascinating timing, no?

Update: Good point from Mike Rivero. Elliot Spizter got nailed soon after he started making noise about sub-prime mortgages and according to Rivero, Bank of America was the culprit then too.

Update 2: TPMMuckraker is going through the charges so I don't have to, but here's my guess (and it's only a guess, so don't quote me) but my gut says they probably could've actually GOTTEN him something worse, rather than solicitation if they'd waited. (Though, with what they did get him on, he's looking at 20 years or so. Yikes.) They chose not to wait, perhaps to send a message to anyone else daring to call out our banking overlords? Just a conspiratorial thought, brought to you by The Vidiot.

This smells so bad that I hope one of Obama's first acts is to investigate this and, if it's politically motivated (which with Mukasey/bush is highly likely) then Obama should give him a full pardon and end this crap now (or, more appropriately, Jan. 20, 2009)
