“Even if the ‘No’ may result in you getting fired, stick to what you believe is right. Bradley learned this when working for the former Governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich. Bradley was Blagojevich’s only senior advisor that did not need immunity during the period of state and federal investigation that ultimately led to the Governor’s arrest. Bradley said ‘No’ the second he was asked to do something illegal. And then he reported it.”
Uh, say what? Could be wrong, but I feel like this is a new tidbit. What was he asked to do and whom did he report it to?
Word, Bradley was young, and interested in building a strong money rather than a large bank account. How can you turn down an opportunity to be a 29 year old deputy governor for Illinois’ first dem governor in 26 years. It didn’t take long for him to recognize that Rod wasn’t all he had hoped he would be. I can also tell you that Bradley fought constantly with the very people who got Rod in he most trouble. Bradley was sharp, hard working, and his follow up was second to none. His success should come as no surprise to anybody who worked with him or for him. Glad to see he is doing well!
Political fixers and grifters who have, so far, avoided jail.

Frankly, it’s good to see both smiling again. The last time I saw them they were under incredible stress. Glad to see both were apparently able find satisfying careers after what had to be less than fulfilling stints with Mr. Blagojevich.
