The UK Guardian is reporting that Blago has made a deal.
Blagojevich is expected today to respond to calls for him to quit. According to the Illinois attorney general, Lisa Madigan, he will either resign or agree temporarily to step aside in a deal that would allow him to keep drawing his salary.
According to the criminal complaint released last Tuesday, Blago is in need of cash. So if Madigan offers him money to leave, he might take it. He said in the complaint he didn’t want to be Governor any more.
He may get his wish and his money. Something doesn’t seem right about this.
