Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says if what he’s done as Illinois governor is an impeachable offense, he’s living on the “wrong planet” and is in the “wrong place.”

He made the remarks to a WLS-TV reporter outside a law office Friday afternoon. The governor says he was hired to fight for the people of Illinois and that’s what he’s been doing.

The interview marks the first time Blagojevich has spoken to the media since giving a defiant three-minute speech last Friday in which he said he’ll fight the forces against him until he takes his last breath.

The 52-year-old Democrat is charged with scheming to sell President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat to the highest bidder and other corruption.
