“Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been interviewed multiple times by federal investigators looking into allegations that he and key members of his administration offered contracts and state work in exchange for campaign fundraising help, according to documents unsealed Thursday,” the Tribune reports.
“Blagojevich made no mention of the newly unsealed revelations at his fundraiser Thursday night, but in a speech to donors he did allude to critical coverage of him by the media and sarcastically gave that as a reason why he needed to keep raising campaign funds.
“’We can’t just rely on all this good press we’ve been getting these days,’ Blagojevich said while an audience of several hundred chuckled.”
He’s declaring independence from the system.
