Blago a Gentleman, in Private?

The Chicago Sun Times continues their investigation of Blago's secret hiring database: 4 recommended by topless bar owner got hired by Blagojevich administration:

Most of the sponsors were politicians. But not Mandera. He's the president of a company that owns VIP's A Gentlemen's Club, a topless bar on the Near North Side.

The electronic records maintained by Blagojevich's Office of Intergovernmental Affairs -- his patronage office -- between 2003 and 2005 identify Mandera, 52, of Glenview, as the sponsor for nine state job applicants.

"I have no knowledge of what you're talking about," Mandera told a Sun-Times reporter who asked about the Blagojevich jobs list bearing his name. "This is the first time I'm hearing about this."

Lots more details in the story. Seamy stuff.

What a snazzy-looking place. No windows. Hmm, and we still don't know Who is Client 10. Is Gov. Blago really a gentleman? Who knew?
