"There is a line between routine politics, political horse-trading, political fund-raising. How you ask for political funds.
It was always my intention to try to see if I could do those things on the right side of the line.
I thought they were permissible.
I was mistaken.
The jury convicted me.
Those were my actions.
Those were things I did; talked about doing.
I am responsible for that.
I caused it all. I'm not blaming anybody.
I was the governor and I should have known better."
