Rod, We Hardly Knew Ye


ROD, WE HARDLY KNEW YE….The Rod Blagojevich soap opera is over. The Illinois Senate has voted to convict him on abuse of power charges and has removed him from office. Our long regional nightmare is finally over.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
