As many of you are aware the Obama transition team has become unwittingly involved in the Illinois Governor scandal. This stunning revelation of corruption has once again thrust Obama, and Tony Rezko into the headlines in a most unflattering light. It appears to be clear that Governor Blagojevich is an extremely corrupt individual, the day of, and the day after this broke everyone wanted to know, what, if anything, did Barack Hussein Obama have to do with this. Barack finally came out today and said:
â€œNo representatives of mine, engaged in any deal making with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich over who would fill the stateâ€™s U.S. Senate vacancy.â€
That all seems forthright enough. And to be 100% honest, I personally believe Pres. Elect Obama knew nothing of what was transpiring there. But the questions on everyoneâ€™s mind are, what did Barack know, when did he know it, and if he knew anything why didnâ€™t he say anything?
Does anyone think this will be a tarnish on Baracks presidency? It is after all his home state, his senate seat, and another person who happens to have had campaign donations from the ever mysterious Tony Rezko.
I for one say yes, it will be a tarnish. It was an oversight on his part not to be more aware of what was happening right under his nose with his own senate seat.
