Former Democrat Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich knows a thing or two about corruption. Blagojevich appeared on Newsmax on Friday and was asked about potential corruption in Philadelphia.

“If the question is are the Democrats stealing votes in Philadelphia, my answer is, is the Pope Catholic,” Blagojevich said. “It’s a time-honored tradition in big Democrat-controlled cities like Chicago, my hometown, Philadelphia to do precisely what they’re doing. I’ve never seen it at such a magnitude. Because this is just an indication of just how wide-spread it is, how deep it is. And I don’t think it’s just inside of Philadelphia, my instincts — again coming out Chicago Democrat politics — my instincts tell me it’s going on in Atlanta, it’s going on in Detroit, it’s going on in Milwaukee and it’s going on in Las Vegas.”


Blagojevich compared it to the quote about pornography, “you can’t define it, but you know it when you see it.”

“And coming out of the Democratic, Chicago political establishment, I know how they operate. They control polling places. They stop votes when their candidate is behind. And then in the wee hours of the morning, the dark of night, the stealing starts. And we’ve seen that in big numbers, unprecedented numbers in this election in Michigan and in Philadelphia. It’s outrageous.”

Blagojevich said the Democrats are able to do it because the media doesn’t care. Both parties — the media and the Democrats — share a common goal of getting President Donald J. Trump out of office.

“They’re now stealing the presidency and this is incredibly dangerous to our democracy and our freedoms. And the American people should not stand for this. This is a critical moment in our history and the question is going to be do you take this lying down and just accept it and allow a corrupt political establishment to dictate to the people who their leadership should be? Or do the people rise up and peaceably protest organize and get active and back the President, because this cause is much larger than him. This cause goes beyond Donald Trump, this cause goes to we the people and our right to chose our own leaders in fair elections and free elections.”
