Democrat Illinois Gov. Under Arrest For Trying To Sell Obama's Senate Seat

Oh Brother!

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich-D was arrested on Tuesday on charges that he brazenly conspired to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama to the highest bidder.

Blagojevich also was charged with illegally threatening to withhold state assistance to Tribune Co., the owner of the Chicago Tribune, in the sale of Wrigley Field, according to a federal criminal complaint. In return for state assistance, Blagojevich allegedly wanted members of the paper's editorial board who had been critical of him fired.

A 76-page FBI affidavit said the 51-year-old Democratic governor was intercepted on court-authorized wiretaps over the last month conspiring to sell or trade the vacant Senate seat for personal benefits for himself and his wife, Patti.

Otherwise, Blagojevich considered appointing himself. The affidavit said that as late as Nov. 3, he told his deputy governor that if "they're not going to offer me anything of value I might as well take it."

"I'm going to keep this Senate option for me a real possibility, you know, and therefore I can drive a hard bargain," Blagojevich allegedly said later that day, according to the affidavit, which also quoted him as saying in a remark punctuated by profanity that the seat was "a valuable thing _ you just don't give it away for nothing."

The affidavit said Blagojevich also discussed getting a substantial salary for himself at a nonprofit foundation or an organization affiliated with labor unions.

It said Blagojevich also talked about getting his wife placed on corporate boards where she might get $150,000 a year in director's fees.

A former Illinois bank official, now claiming whistleblower status, says bank officials replaced a loan reappraisal that he prepared for a Chicago property that was purchased by the wife of now-convicted felon Tony Rezko (Obama Donor), part of which was later sold to next-door neighbor Barack Obama.

In a complaint filed Thursday in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Kenneth J. Connor said that his reappraisal of Rita Rezko's property was replaced with a higher one and that he was fired when he questioned the document.

Mr. Connor, a real estate and commercial credit analyst at the Mutual Bank Corp. in Chicago, also noted in the complaint that the bank received a grand jury subpoena in October 2006 requiring it to produce information concerning Mrs. Rezko's purchase, including the bank's files on the property.

WOW! Cleaning House! Democrat Corruption all over the place. Wonder who's going down next?

And Then There's This!

Indicted Democrat ousted by Louisiana voters

NEW ORLEANS - In a year when national Republican fortunes took a turn for the worse, Louisiana delivered the GOP two seats in Congress in elections delayed by Hurricane Gustav.

Indicted Democratic U.S. Rep. William Jefferson was ousted Saturday from his New Orleans area district, while Republicans narrowly held on to the seat vacated by a retiring incumbent.

The wins followed Republicans' reconquest of another House seat earlier this fall that had been lost to Democrats.

WAY TO GO LOUISIANA!!! You got rid of William "Frozen Assets" Jefferson!!!

Charlie Rangel And His Corruption Woes!!

Charlie Rangel's perch as the chairman of the mighty House Ways and Means Committee is in danger. Supposedly.

The 78-year-old Harlem Democrat, a fixture on Capitol Hill since 1971, has been the subject of a stream of revelations about potential financial and ethical improprieties, the sort of never-ending scandal that would pose a serious threat to his electability if he represented a marginally competitive district. But New York's 15th District is tailor-made for an entrenched Democratic incumbent to stay in office as long as he wants, so Rangel need not fear the wrath of the voters.

The only real threat to a congressional lifer like Rangel is internal, from within the ranks of his fellow Democrats in the U.S. House. If they want to strip him of his powerful Ways and Means gavel, they can. And, technically, that is what they are now mulling, with the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct -- otherwise known as the ethics committee -- set to report back on his supposed misdeeds just before the new Congress convenes in early January. But don't hold your breath waiting for any drama.

Oh Charlie, Charlie, Charlie!!! What have you done???

The only thing that surprises me about any of this is that any of the MSM is actually broadcasting it, Marie! I'm sure you aren't surprised by all of the corruption either.

I was caught off guard by this one Gayle LOL, now what did Obama know and when did he know it?



I couldnt agree more!

Blagojevich won't just be under the bus with this one. He seems like the type to sing quite the song. Don't be surprised if his next jet trip to the Capitol in Springfield ends in a fireball in some central Illinois field. If I were him I'd be asking for witness protection-

I wonder if Hill and Bill had this arranged for the October Surprise, and when it didn't go off as scheduled, she then accepted SOS. And if he is proven unquestionably to be involved in this scandal, who takes the presidency? I really don't know what happens next, but I see a big Bill Clintonite shrug coming, as in Lewinsky. Hey, character doesn't count, right

How do you tie this to Obama? This governor was nuts long before Obama came on the scene. If someone is that crazy, evil and corrupt, I doubt they really care about their political party at all.

And if you're going to tie Obama to this idiot, then is Bush tied to all of the following?

And hundreds more...

You're a scream, Marie. You tie Obama to everyone and everything while ignoring any and all FACTUAL corruption on the NeoConned side.

You are immune to facts and truth. That is astounding.

Your blog has become more like Fox News everyday: pure entertainment.

Has anyone listened to the tape of the conversation? The governor's wife is in the background dropping more "F" bombs and asking for more!

It's one thing to be corrupt, it's another to be corrupt, impatient AND shameless!

Whether he was directly involved or not he has already seen fit to lie about it when he said ha has had no contact with Blago.

In fact his own spokesman stated on November 23 that Obama had talked with Blago about his Senate seat and made suggestions as to who might fill it.

ANY office holder who gives up a seat to become President is going to talk to the Governor ofthe state when he resigns the seat.

Chicago has a history of corrupt politics and Obama hails from there as well as a large number of his staff. One cannot be from corruption and not know of it or be blemished by it. Especially in Chicago.

I didn't know Rezko was a U.S. congressman or U.S. senator...

Republicans still outnumber Democrats 10-1 in the last 8 years.
That number is astounding.

Hmmm one wonders...

How can you NOT Tie this to Obama?

How can you stare this straight in the face and ignore it?


Obama and The Governor HAD to have communicated about this issue in one form or another.
I agree.

Rezko just donated money to all thier campaigns, and got them great land deals and perks and things!

You can tie this to Obama as well as you can tie Delay, Abramhoff, Ney, Cunningham and Stevens to Bush....right?

Marie, how many events/people can you tie to Obama?

In the next 8 years,in any and all of these events, Obama will be fully responsible and fully complicit:

Train derailments
Flu outbreaks
Power outages
Steroid abuse in pro sports
Teenage pregnancy
Drug Addiction
Tsunamis (yes, even in Indonesia)
Recall on Goodyear tires
Mad Cow Outbreak
NASA shuttle malfunction
Price of gas too low
Price of gas too high
Not drilling here
Drilling here
Not drilling here now
Not drilling here later
No snow on Christmas Day
"Black" ice on Christmas Day
Corrupt Republicans (yes, Obama did that, too)

Feel free to add to this list...

That's a good idea!

Worked for you guy's and President Bush!

Obviously not...he's still in office.

December 10, 2008 4:47 PM  
Blogger Marie's Two Cents said...


He's in office because at least
40% of us didnt buy into conspiracy theories, understood what the President was doing to keep us all safe, and understood he did nothing wrong in keeping us safe with some of the moves he made because if he had? The Dems would have impeached the man a Longggggggg time ago!

Yes you guy's blamed the moon and the sun not rising on time as Bush's fault and you know it!

I have never seen a President in my life get blamed for everything known to man.

It isnt going to feel very good when it happens to your guy.

Trust me!

I forgot,

Some on your side convinced the American people that Bush was the Devil Incarnate that his approval ratings went down so low and you guy's created the mad hatters of the Democrat party, ya know the ones that left the Reservation Long ago, drank the Kool-Aid, and wanted to distance themselves from the man who did all he could to keep us from getting attacked again and again.

Now you guy's have to deal with them. We dont.

That's what I meant by it worked for you guy's and President Bush.

You almost destroyed the man and all he ever did was make damn good and sure we were not attacked again, at least not on his watch!

His job is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Nothing in the presidential oath states anything about "keeping us safe".

Fact. I know, it's annoying but that's what us liberals rely upon...facts and truth. Boring but reliable.

Obama can't preserve, protect and defend the Constitution if the first thing he does is break the law by not being a natural born citizen, or conspiring to sell his Senate seat.

Put the kool-aid down, turn off Sean Hannity and back away from the propaganda.

The fascist period is coming to an end. It's safe to come outside.
