The potty-mouthed Patti Blagojevich's, the wife of recently arrested Democratic Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, family has come rushing to her aid today after Patty did a smash up job of being caught saying some very unladylike things on Federal prosecutors tapes collected from a wire tapped phone.
From Michelle Malkin:
Prosecutors say the governor plotted to sell President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat and he was arrested Tuesday. In the criminal complaint, his wife emerges in recorded phone conversations as scheming to punish those who got in her way.
According to the complaint, it was Patti Blagojevich’s voice in the background spewing a suggestion to “just fire” some newspaper editors if the Tribune Co. hoped for state assistance to sell Wrigley Field, the storied home of the Chicago Cubs.
“Hold up that (expletive) Cubs (expletive),” she says as her husband is talking on the telephone. “(Expletive) them.”
Patti Blagojevich’s family acknowledged the salty language contained on the recordings but said those words were uttered at a stressful time as both she and her husband were under federal scrutiny.
“I can understand it. This a pressure cooker she’s living in,” said Deborah Mell, who will be sworn in as a state representative next month.
Patti Blagojevich, 43, has not been charged with wrongdoing, and she has not spoken publicly since her husband’s arrest.
Patti's sister Deborah Mell told the Chicago Sun Times and NBC, "“That is absolutely not my sister, Patti is a mother, a sister and a devoted wife. She is particularly protective of her family.”
Deborah Mell has got to be f*cking kidding right?!?! I have no problem with people of the potty-mouthed persuasion. I, too, have a bit of a potty mouth problem. My problem lies with the abuse of power, which she really has none of being only first lady, and a problem with taking part in the shakedowns.
I do believe the liberals and Democrats may have their answer to Todd Palin. The liberal media had such a problem with Mr. Palin's interjection in the firing of the Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan, now let's hope they have the same "moral fortuitousness" about Mrs. Blagojevich.
