Blago Aide: Obama Knew About Senate Seat Payoff

The Blago mess gets closer and closer to President Hopey/Changey:

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's chief of staff said on a wiretap that he believed President Obama "knew of Blagojevich's plot to win himself a presidential Cabinet post in exchange for appointing Valerie Jarrett to the U.S. Senate," the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Said John Harris: "The president understands that the governor would be willing to make the appointment of Valerie Jarrett as long as he gets what he's asked for... The governor gets the Cabinet appointment he's asked for."

Harris had one of the names on that list wrong, so take the story with a grain of salt.

Still, not exactly change we can all believe in, eh?
