Reporting with Sarah Ostman

Prosecutors are again playing recordings where Gov. Blagojevich speaks o his low opinion of U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill).

"Jesse Jackson isn't emotionally stable ... He shouldn't even be a God---- Congressman. He's a f----ing articulate incompetent," Robert Blagojevich says on the recording.

On another recording, on Nov. 14, 2008, Robert Blagojevich says he received two faxes from Raghu Nayak representing Indian organizations purportedly behind Jackson's appointment.

In an earlier call, Rod Blagojevich said, "some lady called my house a little while ago about Jesse Jackson Jr."
Bob Greenlee: "I tell you, that guy is shameless."

Blagojevich: Jesse Jackson Jr. would raise "500 grand" and another guy would raise $1 million.
Greenlee: "You know, I'm not surprised by him at all."
