Rod Blagojevich, former governor of Illinois, has a book coming out, in which he claims that finally the truth comes out regarding the scandal surrounding his apparent interesting trading barack obama’s seat.
Blagoyevich famously said:
“I’ve got this thing and it’s bleeping golden and I’m just not giving it up for bleeping nothing. I’m not going to do it and can always use it. I can parachute me in there.”
“Therefore, I can drive a hard bargain. If I don’t get what I want and I’m not satisfied with it, then I’ll take the Senate seat myself. It’s a bleeping valuable thing. You just don’t give it away for nothing.”
