Future perfect
Revisiting my political prediction for 2008

"With crystal ball in hand, I would also predict that more prominent elected officials with ties to the abortion-rights lobby will be exposed for corruption. This has already happened with Paul Morrison, who, in the wake of scandal, is set to resign his position as Kansas Attorney General, and with New York Governor Elliot Spitzer, who is under various investigations for wrongdoing. I believe it will continue because such officials' acceptance of money from abortion-rights groups reflects deep moral failings that cannot help but extend to other areas of their lives and careers."

"Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, one of the most staunchly pro-abortion politicians in the U.S., has been arrested on corruption charges, including, most prominently, conspiring to sell the senate seat recently made vacant by Barack Obama’s election to the presidency."
