Emanuel pal delivered message from Obama:
The intermediary was John Wyma, a lobbyist pal of Blagojevich and Emanuel. And the message Harris said Wyma was asked to deliver was that President-elect Barack Obama “would be thankful and appreciative” if Blagojevich would appoint Obama’s friend Valerie Jarrett as Illinois’ new U.S. Senator.A real classic. ...Just imagine the obscenities. Kids.
On a wiretapped phone call with Blagojevich the next day, Harris related details of his talk with Wyma. Blagojevich was at home and said he had babysitting duties. Cartoons on TV could be heard in the background.
"They're not willing to give me anything but appreciation, (expletive) them," Blagojevich said of Wyma’s message.
P.S. The Supreme Court honest services ruling can only help Blago, even though the prosecutors refiled charges in anticipation of such a ruling.
