Lon Monk -- plea delayed again

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Rod Blagojevich's onetime good friend, fund-raiser and chief of staff has yet to hammer out the final details of his plea deal.
Tomorrow's scheduled plea of Lon Monk has been delayed yet again.
Monk is now set to plea Oct. 7 before U.S. District Judge James Zagel.
Sources say that Monk's cooperation is not in jeopardy, despite this being the second official rescheduling of his plea.
Monk's cooperation with the government has been significant because his ties to Rod Blagojevich go back to their law school days. Monk remained close to Blagojevich, which included taking part in significant fund-raising activities, up until the ex-governor's last days in office.
