Blagojevich Compares His Case To A Tsunami

Posted by wlpo on March 16, 2011

CHICAGO (AP) – Rod Blagojevich sees his legal tribulations as his personal “tsunami” and regards state legislators as “scoundrels” for increasing taxes.

That’s what Chicago-area listeners learned from their former governor today as he guest hosted WLS-AM’s “Don Wade
and Roma” show. Blagojevich kept returning to a theme of how lawmakers are supposedly sticking it to the average Joe.  He described them and Gov. Pat Quinn as “scoundrels.” He called one legislator a “rapscallion.”

He added detractors wanted him gone well before, in his words, “I had my tsunami happen to me.”
His wife, Patti, sat in briefly, complaining her husband’s subject to “selective prosecution.”
