Report: Blagojevich overwhelmingly favors Dems in releasing grants:
"SPRINGFIELD, Ill. Three-quarters of the state money that Governor Rod Blagojevich has released for lawmakers' pet projects has gone to his fellow Democrats.
Blagojevich has released nearly 139 (m) million dollars for legislative projects under the 'Illinois FIRST' program.
A review by the Rockford Register Star found that 73-percent went to projects requested by Democrats, while only 27-percent went to Republicans.
The biggest chunk of that money went to Senate Democrats _ the group that has worked most closely with Blagojevich. Senate Republicans got the least."

-- The end of 'Business as Usual' yeah right.
