If Blago did not commit any of the crimes he was accused of, why did he lie to the FBI? If he wanted to avoid incrimination, he did not have to lie. Why did he not invoke the Fifth Amendment? How about the following article:I am suprised, I really am. I was wrong about the involvement of Blagojevich in fraud, slice humble pie for me. Of all the counts he was only found guilty of one, and that was for lying to the FBI - post the false allegations against him. On that count they got him, but still its a low blow that took down an ally of Obama and has none the less neutralised him by finding him guilty of a crime that resulted from the slew of false allegations against him.
If he was an ethnic Irish crook he would have a 100,000+ pension for the rest of his life instead.What did the voters expect from Blago? After all, he has something in common with Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic. He's an ethnic Serb crook.
