Key government witness Lon Monk actually worked for horse-racing businessman John Johnston.
The alleged shakedown of the executive is among the central allegation's against Rod Blagojevich: that he delayed signing legislation that would benefit Johnston because Johnston wouldn't donate $100,000 campaign donation.
Yet, Monk somehow continues to fumble Johnston's name, repeatedly calling him "Johnson."
It's a clear mix-up that must be apparent to jurors.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Niewoehner appears to try to clue him in, clearly pronouncing the "T" in the name in question after question.
And .... Monk's not getting it.
One of Monk's last one-word answers: "Johnson."
