Terry Ekl, the attorney representing former Blagojevich Chief of Staff John Harris, said his client's testimony at trial could be pretty damaging for the ousted governor.
"Working for Gov. Blagojevich for the most honest people, was an extraordinarily difficult thing to do," Ekl said after his client pleaded guilty to one wire fraud count today. "I think John Harris ties a lot of incidents together. He will come across before a jury as absolutely 100 percent honest, because he is. I think his testimony will have a significant impact in the government's case against the former governor."
