According to the statement, Blagojevich is alleged to have discussed obtaining:
- a substantial salary for himself at a either a non-profit foundation or an organization affiliated with labor unions;
- placing his wife on paid corporate boards where he speculated she might garner as much as $150,000 a year;
- promises of campaign funds -- including cash up front;
- a Cabinet post or ambassadorship for himself
None of the stories up on Foxnews.com, MSNBC.com, ABCNEWS.com, CNN.com include the Governor's party affiliation. I'm watching live coverage now- none of the networks are mentioning his party affiliation. The only way I knew what his party affiliation was a picture of this guy on Foxnews that occasionally comes up with a "D" behind his name.
If this guy were a Republican, he'd be a household name and everybody would know which party he belonged to.
