Seven questions

December 10, 2008

Center-Left web site Politico has seven questions for Barack Obama about his relationship with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and his connection to the investigation into Blago’s corruption. They’re good ones.

Well, Mr. President-Elect? Waiting

From Jim Geraghty:

In light of allegations that the governor of Illinois was ready to auction off Barack Obama’s Senate seat to the highest bidder, does any major media organization feel like they examined the political culture that Obama came from sufficiently? Do the New York Times, the Washington Post, the major networks, the newsweeklies, the cable networks, etc. — do they feel that they really gave their readers and viewers a good sense of how Chicago politics works, and how that place shaped Obama?

Don’t Stanley Kurtz and David Freddoso, among others, deserve an apology from their critics?

Why is Michelle Obama's license to practice law in Illinois on court-ordered inactive status? Why does one line say she's "voluntarily inactive," while the other mentions a court order?

I'm shocked the press didn't look into this during the campaign.

No I'm not. Rolling Eyes

Some jokester had placed a fake auction for Obama’s US Senate seat on eBay yesterday, but the company quickly pulled it down. Killjoys.

But, never fear, Iowahawk has found the real auction that (soon to be ex-) Governor Blagojevich posted online. While the Feds have seized the account, the screenshots are at his web site; be sure to click on them to get all the details. Rolling on the floor
