Just yesterday, Rod Blagojevich said at a press conference that he was not troubled by reports the feds were recording him:
If anybody wants to tape my conversations, go right ahead, feel free to do it. I appreciate anybody who wants to tape me openly and notoriously. And those who feel like they wanna sneakily and wear taping devices, I would remind them that it kinda smells like Nixon and Watergate.
