From the Who didn’t see this one coming file - another really bad boss denying all wrongdoing
You know how much we love Blago right? Well today we fell in love all over again as he pleaded not guilty to 16 federal criminal charges. Blagojevich, hair perfectly in place, looked relaxed and confident as he entered his not guilty plea at the Dirksen Federal Building in Chicago. Blago said he was “saddened and hurt…” by the indictment, and then told reporters to go f*** themselves. No, he didn’t actually say the last part, or at least he wasn’t caught on camera saying it. But when all this drama began four months ago, he was heard on tape referring to now President Obama, as a “m***** f*****,” so cursing at reporters would certainly not be out of character for him.
As you know from our ongoing love affair with Kwame Kilpatrick, the only thing we love more than a really bad boss, is a really bad boss who, even when caught on tape, still denies any wrong doing. It comes as absolutely no surprise to us that this pillar of the community continues to deny attempting to auction the, then vacant, Illinois senate seat to the highest bidder.
When Blagojevich finally does admit to some wrong doing, we’ll be sure to cover it here, along with the breaking news of pigs flying and hell freezing over.
