NOTE: I thought I had posted this yesterday, but I guess it remained only a draft?!?! Apologies for that.
A posting on the Chicago Tribune website states that sources tell them a key witness in the former-Governor Blagojevich’s corruption case regarding the US Senate seat is dead.
Christopher Kelly, who cited Federal Attorney pressure in his decision to plead guilty recently in regards to charges against him, is reportedly dead at the age of 51 years old. He was due to testify for the government in the upcoming Blagojevich trial on corruption charges that arose from an alleged “pay-to-play” scheme on the part of Blagojevich in naming a replacement for Obama in Congress.
Here’s link to the entry at the Chicago Tribune Website:

Information contained within the following blog posting, has been determined to be inaccurate. Please see the following retraction for all the details, an explanation for why I didn’t just delete this entry, and my sincere apology to all involved:
Well, I just got done watching tonight’s debates. I found it interesting when Joe Biden mentioned the name of an ordinary American who he apparently had a conversation with at a gas pump, about the economy, and about the cost of that gas!
Sen. Biden said the name of this “average American” is Joey Stanko. Some on a popular Conservative message board jokingly said, “I’ll bet he made that name up”.
Now out of pure curiosity, I decided to do a quick google search, and lo and behold, “Joey Stanko” aka Joseph Stanko, Jr. is a LOBBYIST, in Washington working for Hunton & Williams!
His profile available here:
states the following:
Joseph Stanko, Jr.
Practice focuses on issue advocacy before Congress, White House and other Executive Branch officials in the areas of global climate change, renewable and bio-fuels, the Clean Air Act and other environmental laws, energy policy and Homeland Security. Also provides strategic planning for corporations developing environmental mission statements or undertaking long-term business planning.
So the question now becomes… Did Biden have an astounding coincidence happen where the name of the “average American” he spoke to at the pump just happened to have the same name as a Washington Lobbyist pushing these exact issues? Or, did Biden, in his attempt to one-up Palin and her anecdotal stories about people she has spoken to on the campaign trail simply make something up?
I truly believe there are no coincidences, and what would be the statistical chances that Joe would happen to run into “some guy” at a gas pump, speak about energy issues, and what are the chances that that “average American” would share the SAME NAME as a man who Biden is undoubtedly familiar with through his lobbying activities in Washington. Again, there are no coincidences, and I believe the statistical chances are FIRMLY on my side when I say — Nice try Joe, but you’ve been BUSTED!

I occasionally write up postings on my favorite conservative message boards that contains activist information. Mostly these posts are along the lines of things like; writing to the media to complain about bias, to correct mis-information published, and to speak on issues, etc… .
One way that people are probably familiar with, but may not always think about are the great “word-of-mouth” opportunities that can arise when you are wearing a T-Shirt, put up a Yard Sign, or share bumper stickers with your family members, friends, neighbors, and sometimes even your co-workers, too (don’t get yourself in trouble).
