Court-approved wiretaps will answer questions or will they?

It's taken a few days for it to have been confirmed, albeit through unnamed sources that communications between Emanuel and the Blagojevich administration were captured on court-approved wiretaps. Some honesty and full disclosure would be nice as opposed to the variety of sources coming forward only giving tidbits of information. It would also demonstrate that our future president elect was serious about his belief in transparency.

How long will the tapes remain a secret becomes the next question. Realistically the sooner the truth comes out, good or bad, it is the only way to end the speculation of exactly what was said and by whom.

This has also spread to some demanding that Jesse Jackson, Jr. resign since it has been speculated that he was involved the arrangements to raise money for Gov. Rod Blagojevich in exchange for his being appointed to President-elect Barack Obama's Senate seat.
