Rahm Emanuel Up To His Neck in Blago Scandal

Sphere: Related Content

And don't be surprised if he's not the most senior administration official to be exposed.

This Fox News Chicago report says that Emanuel spoke to Blagojevich "numerous times" about the open Senate seat, which has to lead one to suspect that Fitz has him on tape. What did he say and when did he say it?

If Emanuel is proven to have offered anything or even done anything shady, Obama will have to oust him and his first few months will be ugly. Let's hope Fitz gets him under oath and asks the tough questions.

This could easily lead to Obama as it's already up to his Chief of Staff. The media makes it a point to note that Obama had nothing to do with this as they are covering for the man like they always have (like Johnathan Alter on Imus this morning saying Obama was too smart and too honest to get caught up in the muck of Chicago politics) but if there's even an inkling he was involved, it'll be a rough start for The One.
