"In his third day on the stand at his corruption retrial, [ousted Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich] began addressing the most explosive allegation against him — that he tried to sell or trade Obama’s Senate seat. Blagojevich said supporters of US Representative Jesse Jackson had promised to do 'accelerated fund-raising' for him if he appointed Jackson. But Blagojevich said such a deal didn’t appeal to him and sounded improper. He said he had no intention of appointing Jackson, with or without the offer of money." (06/01/11)
