This headline says a lot about Rod Blagojevich's administration -- and how it's perceived by this point in the Illinois media:
"Gov says he didn't know adviser would get 38K for 2 months' work"
[Former state Sen. Carol] Ronen, a Democrat, was elected to the senate from the North Side Seventh District in 2000. She resigned last year.
On March 1 this year, Blagojevich hired her as senior adviser. She resigned April 30.
The additional eight weeks of state employment hiked her pension by $38,000 annually, to $102,000 a year.
Ronen has gone to work for Obama's campaign. Guess she can afford to.
