UPDATED: Missing Pages of History Restored: The Obama-Blago Story That Disappeared is Here:
by Carol Sowers, Wednesday, November 5, 2008. It’s hard to read but it says, in part, the following:
CHICAGO, ILL. — Now that Barack Obama will be moving to the White House, his seat in the U. S. Senate representing Illinois will have to be filled.
That’s one of Obama’s first priorities today.
He’s meeting with Governor Rod Blagojevich this afternoon in Chicago to discuss it.

Barack Obama said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune that he will be sworn in using his full name, Barack Hussein Obama. Guess he’s going to embrace his Husseininess so he can then reach out to the Muslim world. President-elect Barack Obama plans to give “a major address” in an Islamic capital soon after taking office.
“I think we’ve got a unique opportunity to reboot America’s image around the world and also in the Muslim world in particular,” Obama said Tuesday, promising an “unrelenting” desire to “create a relationship of mutual respect and partnership in countries and with peoples of good will who want their citizens and ours to prosper together.”
The world, he said, “is ready for that message.”
“I had no contact with the governor or his office so we were — I was not aware of what was happening. As I said it’s a sad day for Illinois. Beyond that I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to comment.” Obama
When Obama said yesterday that he had “no contact” with Blagojevich, I’m sure he didn’t really mean no contact to include shaking hands, that type of thing. This picture is from last week’s governors conference.
“I want money,” says Blagojevich 🙂
According to him, Barack Obama doesn’t even know Blagojevich and has had “no contact” with him whatsoever – but somebody forgot to tell Blagojevich.
From the Criminal Affidavit:
Rod Blagojevich expressed his interest in figuring out a way to
make money and build some financial security, while at the same time potentially participating in the political arena again. Rod Blagojevich mentioned the Senate seat, the dynamics of a new Presidential administration with the strong contacts that Rod Blagojevich has in it, and asked what if anything he can do to make that work for him and his wife…..
Rod Blagojevich agreed it was unlikely that the President-elect would name him Secretary of Health and Human Services or give him an ambassadorship because of all of the negative publicity surrounding Rod Blagojevich.
Rahm Emanuel: “I’ve known [Obama] a long time. We used to sit around helping our governor get elected, help those strategy meetings, stuff like that.”
Obama Endorsed Blagojevich For A Second Term (in 2006). “Obama, who endorsed Blagojevich for a second term nearly 18 months ago, said he’s ready to help Illinois democrats in the upcoming elections.”
Obama is “saddened and sobered” by this turn of events.
Well, no kidding.
