News, per the Chicago Tribune:

Christopher Kelly, a key figure in the federal corruption probe into former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, is dead.  The Cook County medical examiner’s office today confirmed that Christopher Kelly of Burr Ridge was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital at 10:46 a.m. The office said Kelly died of salicylate intoxication.  [That would be “pills.”  — Ed.] ….

Kelly, who was indicted alongside Blagojevich in April, pleaded guilty this week in a separate federal case.  On Tuesday, in a surprise move just a day before his scheduled trial, Kelly, owner of a roofing business, pleaded guilty to two counts of mail fraud as part of a kickback scheme to illegally obtain $8.5 million in work at O’Hare International Airport…. Kelly faced a sentence of almost 5 years in prison on top of the roughly 3 years in prison he got in June for his guilty plea to tax offenses. Kelly was ordered to report to federal authorities for incarceration by Sept. 18.

So, any proof that Obama didn’t off this guy?

FlyingChainSaw: “…didn’t off this guy.” I see what you did there.

BTW: a teabagger sign featured on network news had Black Eagle and “UNDOCUMENTED WORKER” on it. Oh, birthers.

What is with all of these swindlers dropping dead before they have to face the fucking music?
