    How old is Par Ridder? A Google search didn’t help, but he looks significantly younger than Rob Blagojevich’s 52 years.

    Although they don’t look much alike, I submit Al Franken as Blago’s SAB sibling due to the similarities of their work related compensation packages.

    Children’s charities got shaken down to pay them both.
