    Gov. Ryan was one of a very small number of Republicans I've ever voted for. He was very liberal on many social issues, putting into place the moratorium on capital punishment, for example. When he ran first, he ran against a downstate Democrat who was considerably to the right of him on social issues (notably abortion), and so I voted for the lesser of two evils, the Republican. I actually think he was a decent governor. But, it seems he was corrupt, and I hope he's one of many corrupt Republican politicians who will be spending some time behind bars...
