News From The Domestic Terrorism Front

Wow, it’s Cruz Bustamante all over again! The Chicago Sun-Times reports:

A high-ranking official in Gov. Blagojevich’s office spent nearly two years in a federal prison for refusing to aid a government terrorism probe into a series of bombings in Chicago and New York City.

Steven Guerra, Blagojevich’s $120,000-a-year deputy chief of staff for community services, was identified by federal prosecutors as a member of the Puerto Rican separatist group, FALN, which was behind a wave of violence and killings in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Radical Chic–it’s not just for classical music conductors, academia, and Hollywood anymore.

(Oh, and other than a reference to the affiliation of the person who recommended Guerra for his job, the usual Spot The Party rule applies to the Sun-Times’ article.)
