It has to go to Illinois Governor Rob Blagojevich who was arrested today on corruption allegations. Not only did he try to have the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board fired for disagreeing with his policies, but he also tried to SELL A US SENATE SEAT.
- The Senate seat “is a fucking valuable thing, you just don’t give it away for nothing.”
- Unless “I get something real good,” he would appoint himself to the seat.
- “I’m going to keep this Senate option for me a real possibility, you know, and therefore I can drive a hard bargain. You hear what I’m saying. And if I don’t get what I want and I’m not satisfied with it, then I’ll just take the Senate seat myself.”
