A longtime friend, onetime fund-raiser and ex-chief of staff to Rod Blagojevich has once again postponed pleading guilty in the corruption case of the former governor.
Plans are off for a guilty plea tomorrow by Lon Monk, whose cell phone was among those tapped in the probe of the ex-governor.
Monk's new plea date is now Oct. 20.
It's at least the third time the lobbyist's plea has been rescheduled.
But that's not because talks are falling apart, sources insist. They say small issues keep cropping up, including ones that are simply logistical.
Monk was indicted on a single count of wire fraud. He's a longtime friend of Blagojevich who is expected to act as a witness at the trial scheduled for next June.
