The Sun Times shares a bit about fund raising, the governor and the state pension systems. (Read the entire store)
Gov. Blagojevich has netted more than $500,000 in political contributions through companies that do business with state pension systems, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis of campaign records has found.

Yet again some timing between donations and actions seems a bit interesting with this administration.
Since Blagojevich took office, Edgewater has been awarded investments totaling $50 million from the teacher pension board. Edgewater made a $10,000 contribution to Blagojevich on Nov. 4, 2003 -- five days after the Teachers' Retirement System board voted to invest $25 million with Edgewater.

You want to show some leadership governor, return all the money you have gotten from anyone who does business with the retirement funds or their agents and don't appoint a former Democratic State Senator to be in charge of one of the funds.
