Classy to the Last
Ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich is lashing out at the Illinois lawmakers who removed him from office, calling them drunkards and adulterers who don't know how to do their jobs.
Blagojevich's former colleagues and close associates are laughing off the latest comments as those of a desperate man — but he could make people nervous if he starts naming names as federal prosecutors prepare to indict him on corruption charges.
"At some point he's going to realize how much trouble he's in and the way the federal sentencing works now, the best way to reduce your own sentence is to cooperate against someone else," said Chicago defense attorney John Beal.
Blagojevich, impeached and ousted last month in the wake of federal corruption charges, seems open to spilling in a book at least some of what he saw during his two terms in the state's highest office.
"I've got my crayons ready, I'm ready to write it. I'd like to tell those stories," Blagojevich said during a Wednesday interview on WLS Radio's "The Don and Roma Morning Show."
