Reporting with Sarah Ostman

Rod Blagojevich says to Robert Blagojevich, referring to Obama's camp in 2008, around the time the Senate seat was up for grabs:

"If I'm so f----ing repugnant to them, take Jesse Jackson Jr. F---- them... Why the f--- should I send them Lisa Madigan who gets zero percent from African-Americans, piss off my base, and I get nothing? F--- you, Harry Reid."

Previous testimony indicated that Reid, the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, had called Rod Blagojevich in late 2008, encouraging him against appointing Jackson.
