It appears that his phone conversations—the ones revealed thus far—aren’t enough to convict him of anything, according to all the talking heads I heard this morning. Saying something doesn’t mean any money changed hands or anything untoward actually took place. So he’s got one foot out the door already. I agree that Blago should take a stand. It’s the Chicago way. (And hopefully he and the rest of those involved get their just “rewards”.)
“It appears that his phone conversationsthe ones revealed thus fararent enough to convict him of anything”
Well, not entirely true otherwise Fitz never would have busted him. Blago conspired to use a public trust for his personal gain.
Here is a link to contact Blago and tell him not to let Fitz keep this investigation private. Blagajevich should call their bluff and say make my day....go ahead with the impeachment. I think we will all benefit from this investigation being kept in the public eye. Once Blago resigns he will lose the one thing he has going for him: bringing consequences to other dirty politicians.
The law says that intent is sufficient for conviction so Blago is going to be in trouble anyway.
