CHICAGO (AP) -- Ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says a recently released phone conversation taped secretly by federal authorities shows his brother participated in "nothing inappropriate."
Blagojevich spoke Saturday on Fox News to presidential candidate-turned talk show host Mike Huckabee.
Blagojevich calls himself the "anti-Nixon" and says that when the truth is revealed about the federal corruption case against him, it'll be "historic."
The recorded exchange captures Roland Burris promising Robert Blagojevich he'll "do something" for the governor's campaign fund. Rod Blagojevich later appointed Burris to President Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat.
Blagojevich Saturday said that "under the circumstances," Burris was the best choice he could make.
