Rod Blagojevich: "Follow the money"

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Rod and Patti Blagojevich entered the Dirksen Building minutes before court was scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m.

Rod spoke briefly to reporters, thanking Judge James Zagel for allowing him to attend his daughter, Amy's, graduation yesterday afternoon. She finished second in her eighth-grade class, he said.

Echoing attorney Sam Adam Jr.'s opening statement yesterday, Blago then urged jurors and the press to "follow the money."

"You will see that I didn't take a dollar, I didn't take a nickel, I didn't take a penny I didn't earn," he said.

Judge Zagel entered the courtroom at about 9:40. The testimony of FBI Special Agent Dan Cain is now under way.

Easier said than done...cash is hard to follow and sometime's difficult to spend as well...there was plenty of that just ask Harris and Frawley.
