Watch your head…
After everyone and their donkey called for Blagojevich to step down, The One called on his close friend Governor Blagojevich to resign today.
President-elect Barack Obama wants Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to resign after his arrest in a corruption probe, a spokesman said Wednesday.
Robert Gibbs, the incoming White House press secretary, said “yes” when asked if Obama believed Blagojevich should now step down.
“The president-elect agrees with Lieutenant Governor (Pat) Quinn and many others that under the current circumstances it is difficult for the governor to effectively do his job and serve the people of Illinois,” he said.
Obama said Tuesday he had had “no contact” with Blagojevich over the fate of his vacated Senate seat for Illinois, after prosecutors accused the governor of trying to sell off the seat or extract an appointment for himself.
