Gov. Rod Blagojevich is interviewed on WLS-AM 890's "Don Wade and Roma" show in Chicago on Jan. 23, 2009. This is the first extended interview since his Dec. 9 arrest on federal corruption charges. He characterized the move to oust him from office as a plot to raise taxes. "This is politics," he said. "This is about raising taxes. Pat Quinn has cut a deal with Democratic leaders. ... It's all about getting rid of me to raise taxes on people."
