Discussion in 'Politics' started by DavidS, Jan 23, 2009.
This guy is HILARIOUS! He needs his own late night TV show!
He may be funny, but, he actually has some valid points.
He should be permitted to properly defend himself and that is not taking place.
He did. We want the "prisoners of war" to have a fair trial. Blago deserves one too.
I would imagine that there are some very nervous and sweaty people, doing their best to see that this man goes down without being able to say a word or as little as possible, formally.
He would be permitted to defend himself and call witnesses. This is Chicago politics at their finest. He will not show up, nor his lawyers, he's a goner. However, if he tries to 'defend' himself, it will be used in his criminal trial. Out of office isn't great, but better than joining George Ryan.
Here's some reaction in the state, (trust me, not one person around here doesn't want to see Blago in prison):

Good video of our esteemed Boss Jr. at site:
These policians are more crooked than the Chicago outfit.
There the same folks or the frontmen/bagmen.
Tribune editorial reply. I think part of the reason that Blago is going 'national' is that the rest of the country is aware of the senate seat sale attempt, there is so much more:

Looks like the cuckoo is getting himself set for a world of hurt:
