You just knew it was coming.
Just a matter of time.
Right when you thought you'd seen "Full Blago" we find a whole other dimension of Blagoness.
He has challenged US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald to a freakin' showdown.
At a press conference called this afternoon, I'm sure with the full blessing of his legal team, Blago approached the microphone wearing his meanest face. The "this time I'm done screwing around!" face.
Newly released documents are painting a pretty grim picture for Blago. Seems some of the work done on their
$900,000... $800,000...$700,000 Ravenswood meh-mansion was paid for with money channeled to Patti Blagojevich from Chicago Construction Services. Chicago Construction Services is owned by,...wait for it...Tony Rezko. Something like $40,000 of the Rezko kicker came complete with a friggin' paper trail of checks made out to Patti. First to a shadow corp, then to Patti, then into Patti's personal checking account.
Home improvements for the Governor, done by shadowy contractors, as a way to launder money?
I'm shocked I tell you. Shocked.
Not sayin' I would have, but I could have come up with a better way to move that 40K than that, but then again, so could Coco that chimp who does sign language.
A 3 step paper trail?
The wife as the cover?
I'm picturing Anthony Stabile telling Jimmy O'Donnell that the brand new Caddy is registered in his mother's name.
So how does Blago react to this most recent bit of news? How does he handle further newly released evidence that seems to suggest that some of his oldest cronies have been cooperating with the feds for quite a while now?
He calls a press conference, and challenges Patrick Fitzgerald to meet him tomorrow at the Federal Courthouse to discuss the tapes that are being withheld from evidence,. Tapes which, Blago claims, will clear his name. Time to defend the family name. Time to stand up fer his gal!
