Guess who’s speaking to college students about ethics?

Believe it or not, last night’s speaker was Illinois’ ex-governor, Rod Blagojevich. Chicago’s ABC News affiliate reports:

The former Illinois governor facing federal corruption charges addressed Northwestern University students Tuesday night on the subject of ethics.

“If I did all the things they said I did, I wouldn’t be anywhere near this event,” said Blagojevich.

In his opening statements, Blagojevich proclaimed his innocence, accused the federal prosecutor of unethical behavior, and accused legislative leaders Mike Madigan and John Cullerton of practicing what Blagojevich defines as corruption.

Last year, Blagojevich had hoped to travel to Costa Rica so he could be filmed in a TV reality show. But a judge denied his request to leave the country. The people of Illinois probably feel they have already endured one reality show too many from Blagojevich.

I continue to believe that I’ve fallen into the surreal… what? Red Queen? no? … help?
