| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The ex-governor and his brother this morning pleaded not guilty to sweeping corruption charges, including an alleged effort to sell President Obama's Senate seat.
Rod Blagojevich, moments after leaving the courtroom, compared himself to Churchhill, saying "this is the end of the beginning."
He added that "the truth will prevail. I look forward to clearing my name and being vindicated."
Rod and Robert Blagojevich were each charged in a 19-count indictment.
Just before entering the courthouse to a media throng, Robert Blagojevich, 53, of Tennessee, said simply: "I'm prepared."
