It was Election Day 2008; Blagojevich was frustrated and angry as it became clear that Barack Obama would become president, fearing that his own political career was now blocked. And he feels totally unappreciated by Illinois voters.
He rages to his Deputy Governor, Bob Greenlee: “I f***ing busted my ass and pissed people off and gave your grandmother a free f***ing ride on a bus. Okay? I gave your f***ing baby a chance to have health care!”
