WASHINGTON - An internal review shows aides to President-elect Barack Obama had no "inappropriate discussions" with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich or his staff concerning the search for a Senate replacement from Illinois, a spokesman for the presidential transition office said Monday.First is was NO contact, now it's no "inappropriate" contact. We'll see how they alter that statement.
But spokesman Dan Pfeiffer also said the office won't release details of its review until the week of Dec. 22 at the request of prosecutors "in order not to impede their investigation of the governor."
That's Christmas week, when few people will be paying attention and when Obama plans to be celebrating the holiday in Hawaii.
