According to Bernie over at the State Journal Register "Gov. Rod Blagojevich didn't file his family tax returns by the April deadline, opting to get an extension until mid-October."
What was his reasoning for needing the extension?
"He's busy running the state," said gubernatorial spokeswoman Rebecca Rausch.
You’ve got to love that whenever anything Rod does is questioned, they pull out that old line.
Say, if he’s so busy running the State, why couldn’t the General Assembly meet their adjournment deadline, and why did Emil Jones provide Senators another week off?
Oh, and it looks like running the State doesn't get in the way of this:
The first-term incumbent can afford an early TV ad strategy thanks to an enormous campaign account--one that was enriched at a fundraising event Wednesday night at the Field Museum that carried a minimum price tag of $1,000 per person. His traditional spring fundraisers have helped him amass about $15.5 million in campaign cash on hand at the end of last year.
Another thing, if he doesn't need an extension, why does A-Rod?
