This is a concise list of the undisclosed senate candidates mentioned in the complaint against Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Some of these “mystery players” have already admitted their contact with the embattled governor. Others are some “best guess” opinions based on what research I have done. None of these candidates have been accused of any wrongdoing.
Senate Candidate #1
Obama’s choice to fill his seat. Advisor A and B were negotiating for this choice.
Senate Candidate #2
Leaked to Michael Sneed of the Chicago Sun Times to put pressure for Obama’s choice.
Senate Candidate #3
She speculates herself that she may be #3.
Senate Candidate #4
Deputy Governor Louanner Peters
Blagojevich considered this person “loyal” enough to give up the senate seat to him should impeachment be imminent.
Senate Candidate #5
Jesse Jackson Jr.
Announced at press conference the he is #5. Denies any wrongdoing.
Senate Candidate #6
Sneed “leaked” this name on Nov. 28, as being on a short list for the senate seat.
Former Senate candidate who lost to Obama. Huge Blagojevich contributor. Has had several questionable links to the governor.
