Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, resign already!

Posted in Barack Obama, news, Ranting with tags , , , on December 14, 2008 by bloggingmom67

Dear Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich:

I just don’t get why you still think you should be in public office. Do you get that you were arrested? Do you get your are accused of trying to “sell” a Senate seat, and you were captured on wiretaps in a pretty compromising way? So, resign already. Spare us all the drama. Just resign. It’s over for you. Even if you didn’t do this, which I — and likely millions of other people — doubt, it’s over for you.

A recent news report says you’re weighing your options. A defense lawyer from California speculates in an msnbc.com story that Blagojevich might be trying to make the same kind of deal for his resignation as he’s accused of trying to make for President-elect Barack Obama’s senate seat.

“I would be saying, ‘Let me see what I can get in exchange for you resigning. Don’t just give it up for nothing. Let me see if I can get you a better deal,'” said Steve Cron, a defense lawyer from Santa Monica, in the story.

Please. Don’t drag this on any more. It won’t help you, and it will hurt the nation and Obama.

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich charged with corruption

Dear Illinois Gov.:

Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich

 

What were you thinking? Duh? I mean really. You’re accused of going on a corruption spree that included attempts to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama.

OK, what exactly were you thinking? Did you think you were Boss Tweed of the days when Tammany Hall controlled New York City politics with an iron hand (and a lot of corruption)?  Well, you missed that era by nearly 100 years.

I guess I understand greed, but I don’t understand why people who try to sell Senate seats think they won’t get caught. If you did this, I’m glad you were charged, and I hope you’re punished.

Rod — can I call you Rod? — do you see our nation is facing one of its largest challenges? The economy is in shambles. We are in the midst of a prolonged recession that’s likely to get worse before it improves, according to Obama.

And — if what you’re accused of is true — you were worried only about lining your own pockets? Shame on you. Really.
