The Value of a Senate Seat

Gov. Blagojevich allegedly said he would rather take the seat himself rather than be underbid for it:

“I’m going to keep this Senate option for me a real possibility, you know, and therefore I can drive a hard bargain. You hear what I’m saying. And if I don’t get what I want and I’m not satisfied with it, then I’ll just take the Senate seat myself.”

Later, ROD BLAGOJEVICH stated that the Senate seat “is a f—ing valuable thing, you just don’t give it away for nothing.”
