    Perhaps President-Elect MoFo (Blago’s word—ethnicized) ought to take a few lessons on Ethics…rather than use wiggle-words like Clinton.

    Wow Governor Blog-o-bitch was exchanging favors with the Chicago Tribune to get editorialists who wrote negative press about him fired.

    But I’m sure it’s all the result of global warming, the war for oil, karl rove, or the failed policies of the bush administration. Because we all know that dems piss gold and rainbows

    @11 You’re getting a little strange on me, Pudz. Are you on drugs? This isn’t some kind of PTSD thing from November 4th, is it? Something you picked up from the goat maybe? Hmm, maybe I should go a little easy on you.

    Even though this is an open thread, I’d like to remind everyone that we here at HA like to focus on the issues rather than engage in personal attacks. If you can’t abide by our rules, perhaps this isn’t the blog for you.

    Thank you

    Poor Stupes. Reduced to the howling street corner loon.

    Fitz’s papers say the Obama team did nothing wrong. There’s no there there and no need for anyone on the Obama team to go anywhere.

    As with almost all right wing bullshit, it’s dissipating into the vapor of empty right wing skulls.

    Betcha This Guy Is A Cheap Labor Conservative

    “The FBI confirmed Wednesday it was investigating allegations that a Louisiana farmer fired shotgun blasts over Mexican guest workers’ heads, exposed them to pesticides and paid them less than minimum wage.

    ” … [A] federal lawsuit filed Wednesday by immigrant rights organizations … accuses Charles ‘Bimbo’ Relan, owner of Bimbo’s Best Produce, of forcing the workers to toil in strawberry fields in Amite, La. … Relan also confiscated the workers passports so they would not flee, the lawsuit claims. ‘… He treated us like animals …,’ said former worker J. Jesus Martinez-Hernandez, one of 13 plaintiffs. …

    “According to the lawsuit, Relan oversaw fieldwork carrying a shotgun and fired it over workers’ heads ‘on occasion.’ He also shot a stray dog to death that workers had befriended, according to the lawsuit. …

    “The Mexican workers were in the country legally under the H2A visa program …. Immigrant rights groups have criticized the program for weak worker protections.”

    Oh, wait, you don’t care about the moral decadence and degradation that is today’s Republican party. You’ll accuse me of doing the very things you Republicans do. How clever of you, Pudz. Geez, nobody would ever see through that. Nobody would ever consider that a wing-nut might go into denial and project his worst traits onto somebody else. God forbid. We know it could never happen.

    That’s such fucking right wing bullshit. Like all right wingers he just wants people who deplore his views to dance to his tune. He’s a hopeless authoritarian. His right wing bullshit is turning off voters in droves but he can validate himself if he can con people into following his orders.

    @68 Interesting that you mention ‘authoritarian’. I don’t consider our trolls to be conservatives, not even Republicans, except perhaps in as much as they stole the name. I rather see our trolls as simple, immature droolers, longing for a totalitarian state in which they dream of playing some small, jack-booted role. Judging from the pedophile site, probably some role that involves abusing the children of liberals. Me? I admit that I’ve got a thing for abusing trolls. I know I’ve got a bit of a mean streak when it comes to that. But I’m hoping to make some small contribution to a better world that way. Or at least to a better HA.

    The Blagojevich Timeline: Everything Fits Easily Except Obama’s Monday Denial.

    Most people have misunderstood the timeline of the Blagojevich Senate scandal. Pretty much everything fits except Barack Obama’s statement yesterday that he knew nothing about it.

    If we didn’t have Obama’s denial to contend with, the actions of all the parties, including those purporting to speak for Obama, are consistent with Obama and his staff learning about Blagojevich’s corrupt plans on Monday, Nov. 10.

    Consider the timeline, as revealed in the complaint and press reports:

    1. On the weekend of Nov. 8-9, Obama lets it be known that his choice for Senate is Valerie Jarrett. Aides tell WLS-TV in Chicago and CNN, which announces Obama’s choice on Sunday. Nov. 9.

    2. On Monday, Nov. 10, Blagojevich holds an incredible 2-hour conference call with multiple consultants: “ROD BLAGOJEVICH, his wife, JOHN HARRIS, Governor General Counsel, and various Washington-D.C. based advisors, including Advisor B,” discussing his corrupt schemes. He follows this with two calls with Advisor A.

    3. That very night, Monday, Nov. 10, at 7:56pm, CNN reported:

    Two Democratic sources close to President-elect Barack Obama tell CNN that top adviser Valerie Jarrett will not be appointed to replace him in the U.S. Senate.

    “While he (Obama) thinks she would be a good senator, he wants her in the White House,” one top Obama advisor told CNN Monday.

    Over the weekend, Democratic sources had told CNN as well as Chicago television station WLS-TV that Jarrett was Obama’s choice to fill his Senate seat.

    So what happened? The likeliest scenario is that one of the many participants in Blagojevich’s Monday phone calls either floated his plans to the Obama transition team to assess their response or tipped off the Obama camp about the reckless ideas that Blagojevich had planned.

    In any event, within hours of Blagojevich substantially expanding his circle of confidants, the Obama camp withdrew Jarrett’s name from consideration and attributed that withdrawal to the President’s wanting Jarrett in the White House. And the Obama staffers went out of their way to depict this as Obama’s choice, rather than Jarrett’s, which would have been more common. The report claims Obama’s involvement in the decision and suggests a direct effort to undercut the idea that Obama was pressuring Blagojevich to appoint Jarrett.

    4. Moreover, by the next day, Tuesday, Nov. 11, Blagojevich already had received his answer from the Obama camp that no quid pro quo would be forthcoming: “ROD BLAGOJEVICH said he knows that the President-elect wants Senate Candidate 1 for the Senate seat but ‘they’re not willing to give me anything except appreciation. F**k them.’”

    5. On Wednesday, Nov. 12, Blagojevich pitched his corrupt bargain idea to an SEIU Official who, according to Ben Smith, is President Andy Stern. Stern agreed to convey the offer to the relevant actors. Blagojevich understood Stern to be contacting Jarrett herself, the co-chairwoman of the Obama transition team:

    109. On November 12, 2008, ROD BLAGOJEVICH spoke with SEIU Official, who was in Washington, D.C. Prior intercepted phone conversations indicate that approximately a week before this call, ROD BLAGOJEVICH met with SEIU Official to discuss the vacant Senate seat, and ROD BLAGOJEVICH understood that SEIU Official was an emissary to discuss Senate Candidate 1’s interest in the Senate seat.

    During the conversation with SEIU Official on November 12, 2008, ROD BLAGOJEVICH informed SEIU Official that he had heard the President-elect wanted persons other than Senate Candidate 1 to be considered for the Senate seat.

    SEIU Official stated that he would find out if Senate Candidate 1 wanted SEIU Official to keep pushing her for Senator with ROD BLAGOJEVICH. ROD BLAGOJEVICH said that “one thing I’d be interested in” is a 501(c)(4) organization.

    ROD BLAGOJEVICH explained the 501(c)(4) idea to SEIU Official and said that the 501(c)(4) could help “our new Senator [Senate Candidate 1].” SEIU Official agreed to “put that flag up and see where it goes.”

    110. On November 12, 2008, ROD BLAGOJEVICH talked with Advisor B. ROD BLAGOJEVICH told Advisor B that he told SEIU Official, “I said go back to [Senate Candidate 1], and, and say hey, look, if you still want to be a Senator don’t rule this out and then broach the idea of this 501(c)(4) with her.”

    6. The complaint doesn’t say whether Stern contacted Jarrett or other members of the Obama transition team, but it is likely that he did. Whether Stern was horrified by Blagojevich’s corrupt idea and wanted to warn Obama or intrigued by the deal and wanted to assess its chances, I can’t think of a good reason why Stern wouldn’t have conveyed the idea to the Obama camp.

    7. On Thursday, Nov. 13:

    ROD BLAGOJEVICH asked Advisor A to call Individual A and have Individual A pitch the idea of the 501(c)(4) to “[President-elect Advisor].” Advisor A said that, “while it’s not said this is a play to put in play other things.” ROD BLAGOJEVICH responded, “correct.” Advisor A asked if this is “because we think there’s still some life in [Senate Candidate 1] potentially?” ROD BLAGOJEVICH said, “not so much her, but possibly her. But others.”

    8. If, as seems likely, Individual A then pitched Blagojevich’s corrupt bargain to the “President-elect Advisor” and that advisor is Rahm Emanuel, as has been suggested by others, then Emanuel would then have known of the bribery attempt.

    9. By 6:10pm on Friday, Nov. 14, CNN is reporting:

    Valerie Jarrett tells CNN contributor Roland Martin that President-elect Barack Obama offered and she accepted a position in the Obama administration – she will be the Senior Adviser to the President and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Liaison.

    10. Nov. 14 to early December: After occasionally feeding speculation about who might fill Obama’s seat, the Obama transition team suddenly goes remarkably silent about his preference.

    11. On Nov. 23, Obama’s “senior adviser David Axelrod appeared on Fox News Chicago,” answering a question about the Senate seat.

    While insisting that the President-elect had not expressed a favorite to replace him, and his inclination was to avoid being a “kingmaker,” Axelrod said, “I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them.”

    Note the language used. While on Nov. 9, Obama staffers were telling multiple news outlets whom Obama wanted for his Senate seat, by Nov. 23, Axelrod was distancing Obama not only from any individual choice, but he used the pejorative term “kingmaker” to emphasize Obama’s avoidance of any even marginally corrupt influence. It is likely that Axelrod had in mind the corrupt bargain that Obama’s camp had already turned down.

    12. On Tuesday, Dec. 9, Obama denies personal knowledge of the corrupt proposal.

    “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.”

    As I’ve said before, as with Bill Clinton, Barack Obama’s words should be read carefully to see what he is saying and not saying. Apparently, Obama started to say that “we were not” “aware of what was happening,” but corrected himself by saying that “I was not aware of what was happening.”

    That language leaves open the possibility that his staff was aware, but he personally was not. But why would Obama’s staff withhold information from him? I assume that Obama is telling the truth about not having spoken to the governor himself, since that might be easily refuted.

    CONCLUSION:

    From the evening of Nov. 10 until yesterday, Blagojevich, Obama, and his transition team acted in ways that are consistent with a knowledge of Blagojevich’s bribery attempt and a rejection of that attempt. What doesn’t fit easily with the timeline is Obama’s statement yesterday.

    It should be noted that it is not a crime to fail to report a bribery attempt. The federal misprision of felony statute would seem to make it a federal crime to fail to report a federal felony:

    Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. 18 USC s.4.

    But case law has conclusively determined that mere non-reporting is not enough. Active concealment or the acceptance of a benefit for concealing is required.

    Yet, looking at this timeline of Blagogate, it seems quite possible that someone in the Obama Camp is either lying or at least not revealing what they know. I also find it hard to believe that Obama’s closest advisors were hiding major corruption from him, especially as he was making decisions about where to place Senate candidates such as Jarrett.

    Something important is missing from this story. Let’s hope that, whatever it is, the absent fact or explanation will allow the narrative to fit Obama’s denial more naturally.

    Since by all accounts, the Obama camp refused Blagojevich’s bribery attempt, it would be extremely unwise to lie about it. Remember, it’s not the crime that trips you up; it’s the cover-up.

    UPDATE: My parsing of Obama’s statement above gets some strong support from this LA Times interview, noted by Byron York:

    It hasn’t gotten a huge amount of coverage, but Obama did an interview with the Los Angeles Times yesterday. He said he had never talked about the Senate seat with Rod Blagojevich. But when he was asked whether his staff had, he clammed up. From the interview:

    Q: Have you ever spoken to [Illinois] Gov. [Rod R.] Blagojevich about the Senate seat?

    Obama: I have not discussed the Senate seat with the governor at any time. My strong belief is that it needed to be filled by somebody who is going to represent the people of Illinois and fight for them. And beyond that, I was focused on the transition.

    Q: And that was before and after the election?

    Obama: Yes.

    Q: Are you aware of any conversations between Blagojevich or [chief of staff] John Harris and any of your top aides, including Rahm [Emanuel]?

    Obama: Let me stop you there because . . . it’s an ongoing…. investigation. I think it would be inappropriate for me to, you know, remark on the situation beyond the facts that I know. And that’s the fact that I didn’t discuss this issue with the governor at all.

    So I was correct that Obama was indeed drawing a distinction between what he knew and what his staff might have known.

    As I said above, there is something missing here. It wouldn’t surprise me if Obama staffers were working with the prosecutors (from the week of Nov. 10th on), a possibility suggested in comments below. But it would surprise me if Obama staffers went to the feds without telling Obama.

    Sorry, but I don’t read every thread. What’s the deal with IQ’s?

    136 was just a number that someone stupid like you might think is high, but really isn’t.

    @88 I don’t believe attribution is enough, but I’m an engineer, not a lawyer. However, I did the same thing you did and the post was scrubbed from the HA site. Further, I do know that I don’t have to copyright my own architectural/engineering drawings for them to be protected under copyright law. I’ve thought for some time that this subject is worthy of some discussion here so we all know the law as it applies to HA posts. Roger seems to know the copyright law and I would defer to him on the subject.

    “You think there’s a shortage of cute female bunnies? You haven’t been outdoors lately, have you?”

    Perhaps so, however the biological imperative is to perpetuate the species. So those cute bunnies are going to be looking for a strong, virile young male with whom to mate. Not a tired, old, jack like yourself.

    Moron Puddy: Have you read the actual transcript from the FBI? Here it is:

    “ROD BLAGOJEVICH said he knows that the President-elect wants Senate Candidate 1 for the open seat but “they’re not willing to give me anything except appreciation. Fuck them.” ”

    Can it be ANY more clear than THAT? So much for you and your sorry and pathetic attempts to go after Obama. Learn TO READ! It will really help you from spreading bullshit lies propagated by the rightwingnuts.

    Also, spreading lies and false rumors was considered to be a crime worthy of DEATH BY STONING in the old testament. Remember that the next time you post lies and try to insinuate false charges.

    spews:

    Puddy?

    Let me help you out a bit by just thanking you in front of everyone here for summarizing the situation so neatly at the end of your post:

    So I was correct that Obama was indeed drawing a distinction between what he knew and what his staff might have known.

    As I said above, there is something missing here. It wouldn’t surprise me if Obama staffers were working with the prosecutors (from the week of Nov. 10th on), a possibility suggested in comments below. But it would surprise me if Obama staffers went to the feds without telling Obama.

    Apparently it is your contention that Mr. Obama had no direct talks with Governor Blagojevich, and that if his staff received any hint of corruption from Governor Blagojevich, they immediately alerted the appropriate authorities. They probably notified Mr. Obama, but carefully did not get him directly involved with the situation.

    Also, Mr. Obama, wishing to tell the truth, but not wanting to improperly leak information about an ongoing case, is carefully wording his statements towards that end.

    Ok, works for me.

    Sheeesh…a Leftist Pinhead banned from a Leftist Pinhead Blog. Now that’s mighty LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW.

    Steve spews:

    Puddy, when you show up calling people like YLB names right out of the box, how could you possibly turn around and take offence when somebody does the exact same thing to you? Is there some degree of offence that you calculate before you take exception? Or is it simply OK when you do it but you then whine whenever somebody dishes it out in your direction? If you want to call people names, be prepared to take as well as you give or get the fuck out of here.

    We’re waiting for you on the other thread. You have a meeting of the minds with Troll that’s been long overdue.

    The first notice I took of Stupes when he threw around the slurs “democrap”, “democrapic” and “moveon.pork”.

    I mean on a liberal blog this moron really meant to endear himself.

    Then he’d go to (un)SP and call the people here idiots who made a call on the legal issues surrounding the Governor’s election contest – the same people who were completely vindicated when Bridges made his decision.

    This fool brought it all on himself.

    Steve aka ByeBye is churning & burning inside with rage. The poison in his system is eating him up causing endless visions of goat fornication.
