Turns Out Obama Did Have ‘Contact’ with Blagojevich


Wow. Ace of Spades highlights a photo that suggests when Obama said, “I had no contact with the governor or his office,” what he really meant was “I met him and shook his hand in front of photographers at the National Governors Association meeting last Tuesday.”

Which, you know, kinda makes that “no contact” statement not accurate. Or, in some less generous eyes, a lie.
