Senate-for-sale case threatens new chief of staff
and I care not who makes its laws."
Sadducee Baron M.A. Rothschild
"If I can tell a nation's stories,
then I care not who makes it's laws."
Probable media-Scribe Sadducee in The New York Times
Obama's reply to if he supports the Gov --
"You want change?
Elect a guy named Blagojevich!
Now that's change."

In the early days of the Senate, when state legislators made the selection of every senator, stories of bribery and corruption were legion, particularly in the Gilded Age as the new leaders of the privileged class sought to buy their way in.
But even after the direct election of senators began in 1913 with the passage of the 17th Amendment, the filling of vacancies has frequently consumed governors and political insiders. They have wrestled with whether to reward patrons, install relatives, put in placeholders, take the post themselves or give it to a politician capable of holding it.
-- Extracted from The New York Times
Let me translate the Sadducee-owned New York Times article above for you.
The media-Scribes proposed the 17th Amendment as the "protection" that would guarantee that "Gilded-Age privileged-class Sadducee-leaders" would be kept out of the Senate.
Of course, as intended, the 17th Amendment did the exact opposite -- it opened up the Senate to control by the "Gilded-Age privileged-class Sadducee-leaders". Now the media-Scribes in the New York Times and others could "tell" ("inform") citizens how to vote for their Senator. This evil scheme worked especially well among Democrats who "have a life" and do not have the time nor inclination to keep up on current events, as was famously showed with voters for Obama in this last election. Democracy does NOT work! A Republic as established by our Founders does work! Do NOT let media-Scribes from The New York Times tell you otherwise.
The Christian Solution
Forget about taking away the Governor's play-toy of political appointment of Senatorial seats to friends, relatives, the highest bidder. That is nothing but legalized corruption.
The Christian Solution requires repeal of the entire 17th Amendment.
An even better solution would require an increase in the U.S. Senator count for each State to three, so that the "one vote of each State" in the Senate is represented by a plurality of votes among the three U.S. Senators.
The People would be better served if the People did not have to worry about voting for both their two Senators and their one Representative. Then they could focus entirely on their sole representative in the House. With only one candidate to focus on instead of three, this one representative would regain the focus of his constituents and thus regain his authority as the proper voice for the People of his district. Since there are 445 Representatives, they cannot be bought as easily as the 100 Senators. In fact, we should radically increase the number of Representatives in the House to get better representation and to dilute the chances of bribery. It is silly for some states to have two senators but only one Representative.
The Governors should NEVER have sole authority to appoint Senators. Unlike a Governor's cabinet, Senators do not report to the Governor. They should report directly to the legislature of the State, as originally intended in the Constitution.
Only with this vertical checks and balances of State legislature appointments to the Senate of the United States will State power allow for a workable checks and balances on escalating corruption of federal power.
P.S. For the selection of the President of the United States, it would help if the state legislatures selected the electors instead of allowing a mis-informed public to ignorantly decide who will be President. This was the longest Presidential campaign in history and we still knew nothing about Obama. We do not know if he is even eligible to be President, let alone if his policies are what is good for America. If we cannot even find out if our candidate is a natural born citizen, then how are we to know anything else about our President?
The 17th Amendment did not "fix" corruption, it made it worst!
The Christian Solution is the real fix
Call for a repeal of the 17th Amendment. 90% of America's problems would be instantly solved with this one real fix.
