BARACK Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, was under pressure to resign last night after it was revealed he had been captured on wire taps discussing candidates for the US president-elect's Illinios Senate seat.

Mr Emanuel's presence at the heart of the scandal threatens to roil Mr Obama's administration as a Chicago prosecutor builds his corruption case against Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, The Australian reports.

The Chicago Tribune did not suggest any dealmaking in the conversations Mr Emanuel had before the election with the Blagojevich administration, and Mr Obama has strongly denied anyone on his team committed any wrongdoing.

Mr Blagojevich - accused of plotting to sell Mr Obama's Senate seat in return for financial and political favours - showed no sign of resigning yesterday, consulting a leading Chicago criminal lawyer.

He held a four-hour meeting with Ed Genson, who defended newspaper baron Conrad Black.



I tell you this guy has Gestapo written all over him.

LOL...urged to resign by republicans..:rofl:

The Chicago Tribune and New York Times did not suggest any wrongdoing by Mr Emanuel, citing sources as saying he had presented suggested names to take over the seat without offering any inducements to Mr Blagojevich.

But the reports could present a distraction to the president-elect, as the Republican Party released a new advertisement declaring that "questions remain" over Mr Obama's links to the disgraced governor.

man some people are gullible

Some people are gullible, apparently the vast majority of Americans.

Why should Obama have to endure the distraction of his roots in dirty politics?

Im sure it wont come to that, the media is on his side! He could rob Peter to pay Paul and be praised for it.

Kind of an ironic comparison considering that he's Jewish. :xeye:
