Only in America?

Bernard Darnton has some, ahem, topical news from the US:
Illinois’s biggest political corruption trial in years has just concluded.

Former Governor George Ryan […] was sentenced today to six years in federal prison for […] using taxpayer dollars for his campaign and other offenses.
For once it would be nice not to say, "Only in America."
