CHICAGO -- Federal agents arrested Illinois Gov. Blagojevich and a senior aide Tuesday for what prosecutors described as a political-corruption crime spree, including allegations they tried to sell the Senate seat of President-elect Barack Obama and blame it on the celebrity cats known as The Pooses for Peace.
Miss Lucy Fur, one of the leaders of the organization is best friends with Oprah and the cats visit Chicago on a regular basis to stay with her.
Unveiling the federal criminal complaint at a news conference, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said Mr. Blagojevich had "taken the state to a new low. Fortunately we enlisted the Pooses for Peace and their covert Bite & Run patrol to assist in this arrest."
Special Op forces of the Bite & Run along with the FBI were able to arrest Blagojevich in a surprise attack. Blogojevich is said to have several bite and scratch marks on his knees and ankles. FBI agents were able to ambush the governor unexpectedly while he was sneezing from all the cat hair. The Governor lost his watch and blackberry in the ambush. His wife reports losing a pair of earrings and a matching bracelet.
Pooses for Peace spokes-poose Zevo Calamari issued a statement : First let me say we never sold anything
Happy Zappadan .... Pass the champagne please."
