***UPDATE*** I am not going back to Huffington Post. She is getting all kinds of press for her recent article “Character is Destiny” where she argues that in the end, the character of Rod Blagojevich is what set this in motion. That’s a fascinating theory coming from a “liberal journalist” who married a homosexual oil tycoon millionaire friend of the Bush family and then settled her plagiarism case out of court, when she stole another writer’s work and put in her book claiming it as her own. Is that “character” befitting the “destiny” she has received? And yet, somehow she is on MSNBC and CNN… and oh yeah, BTW she just signed a deal to work for Fox on a tv show. Yeah that’s just the kind of “character” we need in Washington.
I guess there was a reason that Rahm Emanuel didn’t want to respond to journalists about whether or not he had been in communication with the Governor’s office in Illinois about filling Obama’s Senate seat; he didn’t want to get caught in another lie. Turns out, he has been talking with Harris since the day before the election.
“… communications between Emanuel and the Blagojevich administration were captured on court-approved wiretaps. Another source said that contact between the Obama camp and the governor’s administration regarding the Senate seat began the Saturday before the Nov. 4 election, when Emanuel made a call to the cell phone of Harris.” ABC News
