Blagojevich trial: Lon Monk is the $1 million man. After he leaves state.

Lon Monk left Rod Blagojevich's employ in 2006. He went on to be a state lobbyist.

And boy did he cash in. Monk says his salary went up exponentially. In 2007, he made $750,000.

In 2008: "About a million."

Before that, Monk detailed the gubernatorial campaign, saying Blagojevich handily beat his opponents in fund-raising.

Rod Blagojevich's strategy was to "outwork" Judy Baar Topinka in the 2006 election, Monk said.

He outspent and out-raised Topinka in the campaign, Monk said. (Recall the "What's she thinking," commercials that blanketed the airwaves.)
