[President-elect Barack Obama’s chief of staff Rahm ] Emanuel gave the governor’s office a list of “candidates that would be acceptable to President-elect Barack Obama” but no “quid pro quo” or “dealmaking” is suspected.
Citing “a source familiar with the investigation,” Fox says that Emanuel had “multiple conversations” with Blagojevich and his chief of staff John Harris, who was also arrested Tuesday on federal corruption charges, about the seat and that they we’re “likely recorded and in FBI possession.”
He isn’t even in office yet, and we’re having corruption scandals worse than anything during the Bush years.
I guess “hope” and “change” beg the question: hope for who? And change for who? Being a third world corrupt banana republic is a big change, and gives hope to all who hate us.
