Rod Blagojevich Vs. David Letterman!
David Letterman had a particularly controversial guest on his Late Show last night.
Embattled former governor Rod Blagojevich gave an interview to Dave last night in which he made several claims that he will be “vindicated.”
Blagojevich was ousted from his gubernatorial seat last week after being convicted by the Illinois Senate of “abuse of power.”
He is also facing federal charges that he attempted to sell the senatorial seat once belonging to President Barack Obama to the highest bidder.
Letterman did not demur from needling Blagojevich about his recent spate of talk show appearances on venues such as The View and the Today show .
“The more you talked,” Letterman teased, “and the more you repeated your innocence, the more I said to myself, ‘Oh, this guy is guilty.'”
Letterman also named three former Illinois governors who were allegedly involved in political corruption, and inquired “Is this just part of the oath of office that you guys take?”
Dave for governor in Illinois!
Blagojevich avoided further controversy by opting not to wear short shorts.
