You remember him, the supposedly squeaky clean U.S. Attorney who was going to get the slackers responsible for outing CIA agent Valerie Plame. Yeah, that guy.
He’s prosecuting the flamboyant former governor of Illinois right now, the still honorable and innocent Rod Blagojevich. The case is being tried in in the United States District Court in Chicago. You won’t believe the charges: 1) devising and participating in a scheme “to defraud the State of Illinois and the people of the State of Illinois of (his) honest services” and 2) offering a contract to the Chicago Tribune to dump some editorial writers critical of his administration.
