Lawyers representing Ex Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich asked permission to subpoena President Obama so he can testify in Blago’s corruption trial. According to the Chicago Tribune the lawyers state that Barack Obama has “direct knowledge to allegations made in the indictment”.
This whole Blagojevich fiasco is really getting out of hand. He is really shining a bad light on Illinois politics. He has the audacity to try and subpoena the president like he doesn’t have anything better than do than to try and help him stay out of jail. We have a war going on, an economic disaster, health care issues. A whole lot more important than Blago. Actually, it wasn’t even three days ago that I heard Illinois has budgeted funds specifically for fighting corruption partly from tax payers money.
