Blago Tells Mom "I'll Never Take Bribes"

The Many Faces of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojovich

Breaking News

Chicago -- From a 2006 speech, Blago says he once told his mother that he won't take bribes because "Not only would that be dishonest, it would be illegal." Watch video here.

Recounting his first election victory as an Illinois state representative, the now disgraced Governor recalled what his mother told him in a speech to a party gathering in Chicago, hosted by party chairman Howard Dean.

If faced with a choice between answering to my mother or answering to the Feds, I'd take the Feds.

Hehe, your comment reminded me of how Jeff Skilling's (he of Enron slammer fame) mom publicly ripped him a new one for his shameful corporate crimes in the Chicago Tribune.

I'm afraid poor Blago makes Obama & the One Big Money Party of corporate welfare queens looking to broker more American jobs to third world recruits during this Depression(I believe they're referred to as his "team of rivals") cabinet look like Howdy Doody.
