Is Teflon the like jerri curl
ABC,CBS and NBC (DBA “MSNBC”) all mentioned he is a Democrat. CNN did not mention it. I did not check Fox.
More reasons you don’t want politicians running the economy and healthcare.
If this guy did all this in a short time, imagine all the stuff they don’t have on wiretaps?
If this involved republicans the prez elect would be under strong suspicion right now.
llinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich and his Chief of Staff, John Harris, were arrested today by FBI agents on federal corruption charges
Rod, your new cell mate, Bubba, will just love that 'purty blow-dried hair'.
And he'll prolly name you ... Mary.
Sorta like if your a Black guy with no proof of citizenship you can become President of the United States
Would they dare arrest Rahm Emmanual or whoever else is in Obama's cabinet, or Obama? Obama is not an official anything right now.
Do Federal Pens have Ambassador suites?
What did Obama know and when did he know it for sure...
From the indictment,
benefits for ROD BLAGOJEVICH, including, among
other things, appointment as Secretary of Health & Human Services in the President-elects
Only people in the Obama Admin could be solicited to get that gurantee, maybe even the lead corruptor in charge himself.
I just turned on the View (I know, I don’t know what I was thinking) to see what they’d say, if anything. Whoopie, in her near-illiterate-way, read a VERY brief recap of the charges which was followed by a few seconds of banter, then on to a blurb about Oprah. No one mentioned Obama’s name, except to say that it’s his seat that was “sold” and NO ONE said the word DEMOCRAT.
Who is that???
CROOK COUNTY: GOVERNOR, YOU'RE UNDER ARREST...
Federal probe widens to Obama's vacant seat, Illinois Gov...
'A fu**ing valuable thing, you just don't give it away for nothing'...
Wiretaps: 'I Want To Make Money'...
MERRY FITZMAS: Plame Leak Prosecutor Turns Attention on Obama's Home State...
'The breadth of corruption laid out in these charges is staggering'...
timing is everything....
Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr. Grant thanked the Chicago offices of the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Inspector General for assisting in the ongoing investigation. The probe is part of Operation Board Games, a five-year-old public corruption investigation of pay-to-play schemes, including insider-dealing, influence-peddling and kickbacks involving private interests and public duties.
Wow. Thanks for the updates!
Worth watching to see how abamanation-rezko connection gets covered up.
Oh my, I didn’t think it could get better but it just did.
I was at an event where President Bush spoke here in Illinois back in 2005. After the event all the idiots were gathered around Blago to talk to the crook.
NO ONE was by obama so I ended up getting his autograph (I'm a memoribilia collector). Back then I knew Blago was a crook and probably would have told him off getting arrested instead I got Obama's auto and blago is going to jail!!! HAHAHHAHAHA
And for the record I didn't vote for Obama for the Senate or POTUS. Just got his autograph because I'm a collector with good insight lol!!!
Here’s the SmokingGun link:
Could get VERY interesting!
the house of cards is starting to collapse..how long do you think it will before obamas cronies start singing like birds to the feds...pride preceedeth the fall..
change?? no, more of the same...the same chicago mob union strong arm politics. sorry, mr. not yet president elect, if you live by corruption, you will fall from curruption.
oh yeah..i will wager that rezco is just the tip of the iceberg. when you run with the mob, you will enf up running fro them.
how do you think bho has kept so many secrets? you think hush money and strong arming had something to do with it?
That my friend is Mr. CONSPIRACY knocking on the OBAMBI DOOR...
He is toast...
pass the popcorn..and buckle up
About half way through reading this I was reminded of the movie where Admiral Kimmel rushes into his office during the bombing of Pearl Harbor and his aid starts rattlng off the damages.
Kimmel pounds the desk “The Battle ships man. What about the Battleships?”
My feeling was “Obama man, what about Obama”
Does anyone else find it amusing that his arrest happened on “the first Tuesday after the first Monday”, the very month after BO was selected?
That would be his Chief of Staff, John Harris. Maybe we’ll get a two-fer.
aka, A gateway to the White House.
I see. Closer & closer...
Barack Obama, bagman for the Chicago mob.
“Does anyone else find it amusing that his arrest happened on the first Tuesday after the first Monday, the very month after BO was selected?”
Sorry, my bad, it was the first Tuesday after the 2nd Monday, but still...
>>> Yeah, timing IS important!!!
>>> He’s not Senator Obama...
>>> He’s not President-Elect Obama (not until the EC votes him in)...
>>> He’s JUST Mr. Obama...
Perhaps the Untouchables are slightly more in reach now...
Wonder if the SCOTUS would like a second look at Barry Sotero????
This is a news release from the US Attorney's office. If they are doing their job correctly, partisan details are not relevant.
However, that doesn't relieve the news organizations of their responsibility to provide the context.
“Gee, what happened to all the useful idiot freepers who INSISTED Patrick Fitzgerald is a “partisan Democrat” who is “angling to be A.G. in the next Democrat adminstration””
Guilty. I never thought I would live to see this.
IF half of this stuff is even remotely true...Rod is going to a pound me in the a** federal prison for a LONG LONG time...
Just listened to Fitz’ press conference... Blogo is a whore.
You do realize that every state you mentioned has had a Republican Governor recently? Michigan and Illinois had Republican Governors until 2003, and Massachusetts and New York had Republican Governors until 2007. In my very blue state, we have a Republican Governor. Don’t be so quick to assume.
Blag’s hair alone is indictable.
And quite frankly....I hope we find out who EVERYONE is that was involved here.
Hopefully, the Illinois GOP can get their head out of their rears to come in and put forth candidates to clean up Illinois...
I doubt it considering the Ill GOP is pretty dysfunctional right now..but if they can’t get it together after this..nothing can.
Yes it is -- in part why I did not believe Fitz was going to do anything prior to Election Day in order not to be accused of tampering with an election. He had to move now before Blagojevich actually had appointed someone to 0bama's Senate seat. The thing is, if indeed there is anything on 0bama in all this, how ironic would it be, his first official act as President of the United States to be issuing a pardon for all of his cronies here, giving himself one as well!
Chris Wallace nailed Ron Howard over his diatribe, Bush the same as Nixon, pointing out that whatever grievance one may have with Bush, nothing he's done was in order to promote/protect himself or the party. Will Howard, big 0bama supporter as we all know, make the Nixon comparison should things fall all around 0bama?? I for one will not be holding my breath.
He will want to hire OJ’s jury.
This guy is toast.
But it all makes me wonder about the corruption that got Obamanation the seat — wasn’t the governor of Illinois then — Ryan?
“A substantial salary for himself at a either a non-profit foundation or an organization affiliated with labor unions;”
“Placing his wife on paid corporate boards where he speculated she might garner as much as $150,000 a year;”
Sounds like what the old community organizer the Zer0 and Mrs Zer0 did in good old Chicago!
The Tribune filed for bankruptcy yesterday...this announcement today...Trib was being extorted to fire the editorial board (undoubtedly John Kass also - God bless Kass for his relentless courage persisting in exposing ongoing corruption) in order to get a deal for selling the Cubs...wonder how far they may have gone on that (Fitz “afraid he’d wake up one morning” and learn that Trib staff would be gone before he could tidy up the case).
