Blagojevich: 'I'm in good company'

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

Gov. Blagojevich was asked about the Rezko trial during a press event today.
Here's what he had to say:

"I'm not involved in that lawsuit. I should say I'm not in that lawsuit. I don't think it's appropriate for me to comment on a pending case that I'm not in.

"Whether you are the lieutenant governor and your name is brought up in that situation, or the governor, or other political figures, that just sort of goes along with the territory."


Q: What do you think of having your name in court every day?

A: I think I'm in good company. Sen. Obama, I think is certainly a great leader. Lt. Gov. Quinn is a certainly someone who leads is a, an elected official in Illinois. I'm certainly proud of things that I'm working on.

"Some of the other names that are being thrown around those things are kind of what goes along with the territory when you have a situation like you do in that particular case. It's not at all unusual that someone will mention the names of people in high places."

Q: There's no connection to wrongdoing on your part?

"I'm not in that case. . . . We do everything honestly and always mindful of making sure we follow the rules and do things right. I'm confident that the truth is always something that prevails. I know what my role is on all matters and all things that I do, and they are always honest attempts to do things for people."

Wow. How can Gov. Blagojevich actually suggest that his involvement as suggested thus far in the case is the same as Sen. Obama's? Obama probably should be worried. These people are going to cling to him like a life raft. Maybe he should have picked his friends a little better.

That's because it is the same as Obama, we all have to see how this plays out, Fitgerald isn't done yet. They said this trial will last 2 more months. The State of Illinois is going to have to build more jails and hold more elections for all the vacancies we are going to have.
