Saint Blago

From the Chicago Tribune:

Saying the Illinois House impeachment vote against him was “not a surprise,” a combative Gov. Rod Blagojevich defended his work in office and again asserted his innocence of any criminal wrongdoing, vowing to “continue to fight every step of the way.”

At a brief news conference Friday afternoon, Blagojevich sought to undermine the House vote by depicting himself as a public servant who does not deserve to be kicked out of office but rather should be recognized for saving lives.
