From his website:
“Our system of justice gives anyone accused of a crime the right to defend himself in court. The Governor will have that opportunity.”
“But if the allegations in the criminal complaint against Governor Blagojevich are proven true, he has clearly abused the public trust.”
Everyone in Illinois knows what kind of corrupt slimeball Gov Blago is. Better he had said nothing at all. This implies to me Durbin has issues, needing investigating.
And Blah Blah Blah, yeah, Of course everybody has a right to a fair trial. But they do not automatically retain the right to stay in office, pending outcome of said trial.
Blagojevich needs to be immediately impeached, NOW.
