Blagojevich Says He Isn't Guilty [WSJ]


Who Said It?

"Each of us does and says things at one point or another in our lives we regret," [redacted] told TheWrap. "The costume I wore to the fundraiser [in which I appeared in blackface] was one such thing for me." Hopefully you answered James Montgomery, CEO of boutique investment bank Montgomery & Co, as that was the answer we were looking for. Montgomery, whose costume also featured African tribal wear and a stuffed gorilla and was captured on a video released today, continued: "While I can understand that some people may have read something other than what was intended into my wearing that costume to a costume party [at the annual fundraising event for St. Matthew's Parish School], as anyone who knows me would attest, that is not consistent with my beliefs nor is it with who I am," Montgomery added. "I am sick about the false impression it gave. All I can do now is to do what I did then and apologize for any offense I may have caused."
