Did Obama Know About the Blago Senate Deal?

 This is actually pretty interesting, especially considering I wrote a satirical pice over a year ago to this effect. Apparently the former Governor of Illinois believes that President Obama was in on his attempt to sell his former Senate seat, at least according to things coming out of the Blago trial.

There's a particularly interesting quote here:

"The president understands that the governor would be willing to make the appointment of Valerie Jarrett as long as he gets what he's asked for. . . . The governor gets the Cabinet appointment he's asked for," Harris said, explaining a recorded call.

Jarrett is one of Obama's closest advisers. Having her in the Senate would have pushed through Obama's agenda a lot easier than the corrupt Roland Burris. The main question here is if anything else is going to come out about this.
