Illinois Supreme Court Rejects Blago Fitness Claim As He Prepares for News Conference

The incredibly weak case of Attorney General Lisa Madigan has been dismissed.
The Illinois Supreme Court has refused to hear a challenge to Gov. Rod Blagojevich's fitness to hold office.

A spokesman said Wednesday that the court rejected the challenge without comment.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan had argued Blagojevich's legal and political troubles are keeping him from performing his duties.
And now Rod Blagojevich is set to break his silence. Get the popcorn ready.
ABC News' Matthew Jaffe Reports from Chicago: Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will likely hold a press conference toward the end of this week, ABC News has learned.

The embattled governor, arrested last Tuesday, has yet to respond to charges that he tried to sell President-elect Barack Obama's former Senate seat.

Instead, the reclusive lawmaker has stayed silent, only saying that he looks forward to speaking at the appropriate time.
Is it any wonder why everyone in Illinois has been trying to tarnish guy as being out of his mind? They know he can brings the whole machine down with the things he knows and they want to get it out there that he can't be trusted. Maybe, But can you trust any of them?

Meanwhile, a federal informant claims Blagojevich used to be a bookie. Which begs the question: Why would he go into such a disreputable profession as politics?
