Blagojevich Scandal

(delusional, narcissistic, vengeful, and profane)

Chicago: "Little in Governor Rod Blagojevich's background prepared the people of Illinois for the man who was revealed in the criminal complaint that has dropped like a bombshell here. Delusional, narcissistic, vengeful and profane, Blagojevich as portrayed by federal prosecutors shocked even his most ardent detractors."
