Mandela, King, and Gandhi

The Illinois governor defends himself:
As he was taken from his home by federal agents on Dec. 9, Blagojevich told NBC, "I thought about Mandela, Dr. King and Gandhi and tried to put some perspective to all this and that is what I am doing now."
Funny. I think that I will use that line. On Nov. 16, 2007 my ex-wife had police agents take my kids out of their home. Everybody makes fun of Rod Blagojevich but I have to admire his resolve and his willingness to prove his innocence. He certainly isn't hiding behind his lawyers, as most people would.

Hello Angry Dad.
I'm a long time reader of your post. My husband is currently going through alot of what you are going through. He hasn't seen his daughter in over 10 months... DISGUSTING.
There was an interesting court decision handed down this month from the Ontario Superior Court (we live in Canada), thought you might like to check it out. The first link is to the newspaper article, the second is to the actual decision from the Court (a long read, but well worth it)...



Good luck to you & your daughters...

Im surprised he didn't mention the Holocaust, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, slavery, or Hitler. I think the Governor would be better served by not being a corrupt POS and actually being a representative of the people and not his wallet. When backed into a corner all corrupt politicians will pull out every Liberal cliche' their is in an attempt to throw people off the scent of their own crimes. He's a loser.
