Gov. Blagojevich: A Senate seat: “is a f***ing valuable thing."


Or alternate title, Gov. Blagojevich would have fit right in with Boss Tweed

Gov. Blagojevich is governor of Illinois and as such would have been the one to appoint President-Elect Obama's replacement to the U.S. Senate (he still could if he doesn't resign or is impeached but, it's doubtful he will in this atmosphere). However, Gov. Blagojevich has been arrested because he was seeking value for that appointment. By, the way, the quote in the title to this post is an actual quote from the Governor that was caught on tape. Oh, there are some more quotes from the Governor. For example, he was also caught on tape saying, “Unless I get something real good [for Senate candidate 1], s***, I’ll just send myself, you know what I’m saying.” Way to go Governor. Obama was still one day from being elected when these comments by the Governor were taped. Wow.
