If you look down on page 8 of the Blagojevich
indictment complaint, it seems he wasn’t happy with Obama since he wasn’t willing to play ball.
In a conversation with Harris on November 11, the charges state, Blagojevich said he knew that the President-elect wanted Senate Candidate 1 for the open seat but “they’re not willing to give me anything except appreciation. [Expletive] them.”
“Harris” is John Harris, Blagojevich’s chief of staff, who was also arrested this morning.
We’re trying to confirm the identity of “Senate Candidate 1”. It appears to be Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett.
