Gov. Rod Blagojevich said today that he "has done nothing wrong" and will not resign in the face of federal corruption charges.
"I will fight. I will fight. I will fight until I take my last breath," he said. "And I'm not going to quit a job that people hired me to do because of false accusations and a political lynch mob."
Blagojevich, however, did not get into the specifics of the political corruption charges he faces, saying he's "not going to talk about this case in 30-second sound bites...on the TV news."
"I am dying to answer these charges. I am dying to show you how innocent I am," he said.
"I intend to answer every allegation that comes my way. However, I intend to answer them in the appropriate forum: in a court of law. And when I do, I am absolutely certain that I will be vindicated," Blagojevich said.
