Let's go back a few years, when the Clintons were discovered to be offering overnights in the Lincoln Bedroom for $$, the plots at Arlington for sale. Recall how dumbfounded so many in the lamestream were, simply could not understand the big deal, why so many of us out here in the hinterlands were outraged at the idea that White House exclusives were being offered for campaign cash.
Like this Senate seat, it was the fact that these things do not belong to the holders of the office, THEY BELONG TO WE THE PEOPLE.
I wonder how much they’re getting for the NY Senate seat.
Nah, it's just a backscratching club. Sort of like a massage parlor.
It wouldn’t have mattered if only 1000 people went to the polls the day Obama was elected Seantor, he would have won by over 10,000 votes. The democrat party is a criminal enterprise, and now they’re graduating to treason.
The real potential for Obama's goonsquad fomenting riots (and the unions will no doubt get their hands into the effort), there has to be a way to defuse the tensions by giving the voters a palusible out for making the mistake of electing this wicked poseur.
Fitz did this to protect the Trib editorial staff.
“I cannot help but wonder if the powers that be are setting up the most effective way to reject Obama if the SCOTUS ends up causing him to be ineligible ... ‘oh well, he was a criminal anyway, it just took longer to uncover it with all the Chicago corruption.’”
Naw, today is a brighter day than yesterday but not THAT bright. There is no law against dreaming, though.
Credit to the governor for my new tagline!
Any word on whether there is an unexpurgated (unredacted) wiretap transcript available online somewhere? Something without “bleep” or “expletive deleted” substituted therein?
The ‘rat Gov. is actually a believer in free market theory.
Here's a good place to start:
It appears they shut this investigation down because it was getting close to “embarassing” Obama.
It’s possible, though I don’t know how probable, that the SCOTUS knew about this and didn’t take the Donofrio case because it would have muddied the waters. It would certainly be wonderful if, on January 20, Obama was indicted rather than inaugurated.
Let's hope that those taped negotiations with Obama are released immediately.
Bwaahahahaha. Mr. Grant should've consulted with Mar, who would've told him "Mr. Grant, we can't go on the air with this!"
Yeah, Rockefeller Republicans. Olympia Stowe, Arlen Specter, and the like. Throw in Ahnuld Schwartzkopf.
He looks like a slimy bass turd.
I can’t get past his hair. Is it a wig?
[He looks like a slimy bass turd.]
Lol, then you could say, “Merry Fish-mas”! -or maybe not so ‘merry’.
Looks like a black Halloween wig my kids once had, spiked out all over, lol.
You've been talking to Larry Sinclair, haven't you?
Who is “Client #5”??
Who are any of the other un-named possible co-conspirators on this?? Nobody in the media cares to speculate, so that means it’s a highly placed Democrat...
Bucket of chicken and a case of malt liquor.
BRING BACK SENATOR PETER FITZGERALD.
Sen. Peter Fitzgerald (search), R-Ill., will retire after just one term. Hes retiring because his own party has turned on him and promised to run a primary candidate against him. Thats because this particular senator decided that while he was in office hed be his own man and vote his own conscience. He wouldnt be a lackey for his party, he wouldnt vote pork home to his state, and he wouldnt do what the special interests who run his party told him to do. And that got him into trouble.
Well, not quite. Instead of rewarding an aspiring local attorney for his political support with the nomination, as is custom in the U.S. Senate, Fitzgerald was more concerned about the ongoing investigation of then-governor and fellow Republican George Ryan, and wanted to be sure an aggressive prosecutor independent of local politics was assigned to the case. So he went out of state and nominated prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald (no relation), who indicted Ryan on corruption charges last December.
That would indeed be wonderful, and almost unimaginable.
Think about why these indictments were announced NOW. Why didn’t Fitz & co. wait until Blag. had ensnared more people in his bidding process and then announced a pick for Senate? This is more likely to be damage-control than a step in a process which will lead to Obama.
We have no idea what information they have. Just because they have released what they did today doesn’t mean that’s the full extent of information. Today they told us what they wanted to.
I think the house of cards start falling quickly. There are pretty nervous people right now. I’m sure everytime their phone rings a little chill goes up their spine.
This is not the end of the story (at least that’s my opinion).
Your tax dollars at work!
How can he look in the mirror and not take it off, one way or the other.
Another classic potlatch!
Thanks devolve, think I posted it three times, lol.
“He looks like a slimy bass turd.”
Now you have insulted and demeaned Bass Excrement!
Thanks for posting the pdf file link. Speaks VOLUMES!! of extreme corruption.
Perhaps Jesse was going to hit up his "brother" for a cabinet post for Guv in exchange for his becoming Senator. But not exactly sure O would benefit.
IMHO, JJJ was offering Blago the big $$$$ for the senate seat. He was not on 0’s short list, again JMO.
0’s pick was Jarrett, until on or about 11/11/08.
I know. Imagine if this and the Mumbai thing had happened from say 9/15 to 10/15 instead of the Lehman.AIG.Fannie/bailout/market collapse endless string of bad economic news.
What happened from sep-oct was simply the worst news ever to affect a presidential campaign. the first time since the Depression that in the period from Labor Day to the election unemployment increased, the stock market decreased, and the economy contracted all at the same time time.
Now some of the stuff that could have helped McCain(focus on terrorism, Chicago corruption, etc..,)comes out.
Oh well. Time to regroups and focus on 2010 and 2012, a lot can happen in 2 to 4 years.
In case the PDF of the complaint mysteriously vanishes from the web, I have put it up on my page as well. You can view it there or download it.
I will be putting up the original change.gov pages today as well. (The ones before it got scrubbed.)
