Reporting with Sarah Ostman

Prosecutor Carrie Hamilton said her marathon questioning of John Harris will conclude Monday morning.

Harris has at times appeared weary on the stand (as have courtroom observers) as he answers question after question about what he or Rod Blagojevich meant in a multitude of secretly recorded conversations.

Sam Adam Sr. is slotted to cross examine Harris.

After that, SEIU leader Thomas Balanoff will take the stand.

Balanoff had direct conversations with both Obama and Valerie Jarrett about the Senate seat appointment in addition to having met personally with Blagojevich.

Doug Scofield is a former Blagojevich consultant, campaign spokesman/head who also talked to Blagojevich about Jarrett's appointment.

Hmmmm, SEIU guy to take the stand soon. I hope he makes it till then. Hopefully he doesn't fall down an empty elevator shaft or something.
