The governor, accused of seeking cash for the political appointment of Obama's Senate replacement, is not a close associate of the President-elect. Indeed, in the affidavit, Blagojevich called Obama a "motherfucker" for wanting him to appoint an official that the governor either did not like or wouldn't receive money from. Local news reports, meanwhile, suggest that it was Obama chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel who blew the whistle on the governor.
Hope Reborn @ DailyKos has more.
The key in this whole mess is that the Good Guys win, the Bad guys are doing (sic) up the river, and that Team Obama, from Rahm to Jarett, appear at face value and upon deeper inspection to have been playing by all the rules and doing things with morals.
This is key as the RNC will try to tie Blago with Obama & Rezko... they already are.... the truth very well may be that it's Team Obama who shut down the corrupt governor after all.
While some are going to use this story to malign the Democratic party en masse, they will be completely ignoring that - if true - it was Obama's inner circle that cut straight to the root of the corruption.
