* This will be the last “news” post of 2007, and it’s quite fitting. The governor allegedly admitted to coupling state business with fundraising...
Gov. Blagojevich told a prominent Democratic fundraiser that the governor “could award contracts, legal work and investment banking to help with fund-raising,” according to a federal court document released Friday.
The court filing offers a detailed overview of the evidence federal prosecutors expect to introduce in the upcoming trial of Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a former key fund-raiser and adviser to the governor. […]
Blagojevich allegedly told [prominent fundraiser Joe Cari] he “had a lot of ways of helping his friends and that Rezko and Co-Schemer B were his point people in helping his friends and coordinating fundraising,” according to the court document.
“Co-Schemer B” has previously been reported as being Chris Kelly.
