Blagojevich Breaks Silence From Prison

Rod Blagojevich makes no bones about it. He’s doing a great job in his current position.

“I’ve been given the jurisdiction to sweep and mop two floors,” he says. “So my jurisdiction has shrunk from the fifth biggest state in America, to these two floors. But I don’t care what anybody says, I believe in clean government, and I believe in clean floors.” ...

It is Blagojevich’s first public comment since he entered FCI Englewood five and a half years ago. ..

“Do you realize, I have twice been given a longer prison sentence than Al Capone?” he says. “I’ve been given a prison sentence by the same judge who gave a mafia hit man...he acknowledged under oath, a contract killer, my judge gave me a longer sentence than him!”

Blago, not a choir boy, not even close to clean.

But he has been screwed over, big time.

Note he waited: After more than five years in prison, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich spoke to NBC 5 in his first television interview, revealing details of his life, his family and his hopes for freedom.???

Rod,

The people of Illinois are real sorry.

At least you don’t have to share a building with Hillary.

Sincerely,

The people of Indiana.

(That should make it feel better)

Rod needs to spill his guts about the epic-level corruption of the IL Combine (which includes Zero).

“He’s doing a great job in his current position”
He might want to re-state this considering he is in prison.
LOL

What’s his position now, picking up a bar of soap?

The old line is:
In Chicago, Watergate would have been a misdemeanor!

One would think that with all that Blago did for our former Community Organizer-in-Chief he would have been pardoned long before Brad Manning was.

I wonder how many death threats to his family he gets daily from Obama’s Marxist minions. No if ands or buts he has dirt on Obama but he swallowed it.
