A plea deal announced today by federal authorities involving the former director of the Illinois Finance Authority places Gov. Rod Blagojevich – otherwise known as Public Official A – right in the crosshairs.

But a lot of people are saying otherwise. And the odds of a Blagojevich indictment in 2008 just got better.
The more interesting question: Will Rezko ultimately flip? Because his goose looks cooked.
