Next Tuesday night Northwestern University is hosting a panel titled “Ethics in Politics.” The guest of honor? Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) — the man accused of trying to sell President Obama’s old Senate seat.It’s a real event — we swear! According to the event’s Facebook page:

A Northwestern faculty panel featuring Law Professor Tonja Jacobi, Political Science Professor Donald Gordon and Medill Professor Donna Leff will interview Blagojevich, and then Northwestern students will have the opportunity to question him themselves.

You know what they say: if you can’t do, teach!
