Blagojevich Scandal – Did Rahm Emanuel Tip Off U.S. Federal Investigators (Patrick Fitzgerald)?

If so, he just easily became my favorite politician.  Yes, surpassing Barack.  The update section of the above link quotes a source close to Emanuel stating the story isn’t true and is the result of overzealous reporting.  Call me overzealous.

Blogger fails to note everyone knew in October (or before – like, February 6th) that Obama was going to beat mccain, Rahm would be the Chief of Staff, and Blagojevich had a Sentate seat he could sell.   This said, I can only hope that Blago mentioned to Rahm that the Senate seat was for sale in early October and the ball rolled from there.

  1. A source close to Rahm is denying that he was the whistle-blower, but that doesn’t mean for sure that he wasn’t. If he was he may have reasons for not wanting that information to be public, even though it makes him look good.
