Either way the election goes, he's pardoned on that day.
I’m sure you’re right. Because a guy like Blago would NEVER take the heat alone without an iron clad agreement, methinks.
Tried to tell my husband this last night, that Blago surely had a deal to shut up and protect some... and that he’ll be pardoned soon enough.
“Watch your cornhole, bud.”
I don’t think so. You’re giving him way too much credit.
He wasn’t so much a big-shot dealmaker on the inside of things as he was a pip-squeak wannabe who happened to have the personality to win elections. Everything he did was to try to benefit himself personally because he wasn’t “in with the in crowd”.
I think they’ll let him rot because they know he hasn’t got anything on them.
Did you catch that he held a press conference last night at exactly 5:02PM? Timed so the TV stations could carry it live...classic Blago...
WGNTV news last night had a feature on this. The reporter made it seem a shame he had to endure a prison sentence, with nothing but loyal supporters (yes, they exist) being interviewed.
Along with this, they reported the Catholic school his girls go to is being closed for budget reasons. They even had Blago on mic saying it’s a shame that at a time their father has to go to prison, his girls are losing their school. This too was made into a crying shame by the reporter.
Today a breakfast, a friend told me he heard the family is moving to Colorado to be near Blago. If true, what’s the big deal about a Chicago Catholic school closing (insofar as his daughters are concerned)? It won’t affect them. In any event, whether they go to Colorado or not, the wife’s father will surely step up and take care of his daughter and the kids.
If he lives that long. Dead men tell no tales.
could be that his family would feel the pain for his
failure to keep mum.
Shave his head.
That’s an awful thought!
I’m not a Blago fan but 14 years seems exccessive?
I mean there are child perverts who have gotton out in less than two years? Heck, murderers have gotten less time.
“Surrenders” LOL makes me laugh.
As if the POS had a choice.
If this were any of us regular people, we would have been sitting in the can since day 1, and no option to go to Freddys Frozen Custard and Steakburgers for that final hamburger.
Most likely will spend the first night blubbering like a baby.
This lunatic never shuts up.
Even on his way to jail, he’s eagerly trying to meet /get face time with news media.
No shame, not one shred of contrition!
What an a-hole.
