CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) – Embattled Gov. Rod Blagojevich said Friday he will wait to speak to the Illinois people at the "appropriate time."

Asked whether he had anything to say to Illinoisans, the governor, who was leaving his attorney's office, told CNN, "I will at the appropriate time."

The governor also did not answer a question on whether he is going to resign, saying only, "I'll have a lot to say at the appropriate time."

    When is the appropriate time–when he's in the BIG HOUSE. LOL

    He'd better not mess things up for Obama. His mother raised him right. Blagos' mom apparently didn't.

    This guy said that he "just wants to make money". After this scandal (and some Federal prison time) he'll be lucky to get a job a McDonalds cleaning the bathrooms.
