President Barack Obama has appointed former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich as his new advisor on Ethics. The post will be considered Cabinet Level by the President and will consult with Obama on moral and ethical questions on a daily basis.
Obama said that "I have worked with Rod for many years and found all of his decisions and ideas to be above board and of high quality. His moral compass has always been my guideline and has kept me on the straight and narrow. I hope that I can follow his lead and that we can do for this country what he has already done for the state of Illinois."
Blagojevich could not be reached for comment, but positions in his department are currently for sale on E-Bay.
