But We're Not That Bad

The current local Korean scandal involves accusations that the current president and his opponent in the last election both took illegal donations from corporations.

From Roh renews his pledge to quit in funds scandal:

[South Korean President] Roh said he would quit if it were found that his camp had received more than 10 per cent of the illegal donations received by Lee Hoi-chang, the candidate he defeated in the December 2002 election.

So Roh isn't claiming innocence; he's just saying that his side was not as bad as the other side.
