Blago’s Federal Security Clearance Revoked

Hod Rod Blagojevich’s federal security clearance has been revoked by the Department of Homeland Security.  What does this mean?  Well, Hot Rod can no longer enjoy the privilege of viewing  classified federal security information from Homeland Security and other federal agencies such as the FBI.  Chicago Sun Times.

“Being the subject of a criminal complaint, no matter who you are, is a disqualification.”

Indeed, Blago’s arrest on attempts to sell the Illinois Senate seat to the highest bidder have closed the door on his briefings on sensitive federal information.  What other privileges will be cut off along the same vein?  Only time will tell.  Lots of tapped calls and witnesses stepping up to talk though.  Blago being out of the loop on federal security clearance does not seem to be a problem for him so far.
