File under I HOPE YOU TAKE IT UP THE ASS YOU SQUAREHEADED LITTLE BITCH:

(AP) Former Gov. John G. Rowland, driven from office by a corruption scandal, said in court Thursday that he would plead guilty to a single federal charge. It carries a sentence of up to five years.

Speaking before U.S. District Judge Peter Dorsey, Rowland said he was prepared to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to steal honest service.

The plea deal would end the two-year-long investigation into corruption in his administration. Rowland resigned July 1. Rowland's lawyer, William F. Dow III, acknowledged the former governor was "the recipient of certain gratuities."

After Rowland spoke, Dorsey questioned him about the plea agreement, before deciding whether to accept it. He advised Rowland that he faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. He also told Rowland that as a convicted felon he would not be able to vote or hold public office.

Couldn't happen to a more appropriate public official. I mean, it seriously couldn't, really. John G's just a little fish in the pond of national politics. Anybody higher up the chain (*ahem* Mr. President? Congressman DeLay?), would've bought their way out of it. I guess we'll have to take this one as about the best potential victory. Wish somebody'd found him out before he laid off 3,000 state workers, though.

Die, die & die, you sweaty bitch.
