Illinois Governor Rod R. Blagojevich has vigorously defended himself against accusations he tried to sell President-Elect Barack Obama’s Senate Seat, claiming he was grossly misunderstood.
“I was talking about Obama’s actual Senate seat, the chair he sat on,” said an irate Blagovich.
“After all of those years with his narrow arse wearing on it, that seat is well and truly due for replacement.”
Governor Blagovich said he was doing the state a favour.
“You people are unbelievable – I was trying to help the environment by recycling, and you accuse me of corruption,” he said.
After appearing in a federal court, Blagojevich was released from custody on a $4,500 bond, and immediately offered local bail bond agents the opportunity to “sponsor” him for just $9,000.
