MEMBER DIARY

President Obama is Now Officially Involved in the Blago Scandal

On the witness stand and on recorded tape the bombshell has been released:

“The president understands that the governor would be willing to make the appointment of Valerie Jarrett as long as he gets what he’s asked for. . . . The governor gets the Cabinet appointment he’s asked for,” Harris said, explaining a recorded call.

Now the questions is, is there even more evidence that will surface in this scandal? This is going to get ugly fast if the dirtiness of Chicago politics rings true, and it will be dramatic since the president is now involved.

The next piece of dirt to surface in the trial is that Rham delivered the list of names to Blago:

In the call, Blagojevich’s chief of staff, John Harris, tells his boss that Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s soon-to-be top aide, had called him to give him a list of four people that Obama would find acceptable as his successor in the Senate.

Now it is going to very interesting. Will the media cover for the president like it did during the  campaign? Tune in and we will find out soon enough.
