The Blagojevich Plot Thickens

December 9, 2008

How much did O know?

As you may know by now, Illinois Gov Rod Blagojevich (D) was arrested this morning by the FBI on charges of federal corruption. Not the least of which is Blagojevich conspiring to sell or trade Illinois’ U.S. Senate seat.

Had Barack Obama been discussing his senate replacement with Gov. Blagojevich or not?

Asked what contact he’d had with the governor’s office about his replacement in the Senate, President-elect Obama today said “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.”

But on November 23, 2008, his senior adviser David Axelrod appeared on Fox News Chicago and said something quite different.

While insisting that the President-elect had not expressed a favorite to replace him, and his inclination was to avoid being a “kingmaker,” Axelrod said, “I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them.”

Are we to believe David Axelrod the main man behind the O was mistaken? The man behind Obama’s successful presidential campaign? The one Obama chose as senior adviser in his future administration?

I was mistaken when I told an interviewer last month that the President-elect has spoken directly to Governor Blagojevich about the Senate vacancy. They did not then or at any time discuss the subject.”

Round and round we go.
Where will it stop?
