A spokesman for U.S. Sen Dick Durbin (D-IL) chalked up a subpoena by the Rod Blagojevich defense as more "antics" from defense lawyers who have cast a net "from the President down to dogcatcher."
Durbin spokesman Joe Shoemaker said Durbin was served on April 16, 2010 by Rod Blagojevich's defense attorneys. The revelation came a day after defense lawyers filed a request to U.S. District Judge James Zagel, asking him to force the president to testify at the former governor's June 3 trial.
"Given the former Governor's previous antics regarding this case, it's no surprise he is casting a wide net - apparently from the President down to dogcatcher," Shoemaker said.
"We have accepted service of the subpoena and will cooperate with the court in any reasonable way. The matter has been referred to counsel, and our office will not be commenting further."
