Blago Hides Behind Child
After an appearance with his family to open the Illinois State Fair, the governor repeatedly was asked how it was plausible his office knew nothing about rules allegedly being bent for job applicants even though some of them had been referred by his office.
"Look, those are issues you have to ask other people who make those determinations," he said.
As tensions with reporters mounted, the governor picked up his 3-year-old daughter, Annie. Moments later, she burst into tears, which the governor attributed to reporters' questions.
