Blagojevich trial: Day 20 and recap

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

FBI Special Agent Patrick Murphy testified that Rod Blagojevich told him in 2005 that he kept a firewall between himself and fund-raising. But then two former campaign finance directors said Blagojevich took a central role in fund-raising, in fact, they said, in meetings he'd yell out: "bullsh---er!" in reference to donors who weren't pulling their weight.

Up Next: Gerry Krozel, who headed up Illinois' road builders, continues his testimony. He testified Tuesday that Blagojevich asked him for campaign contributions at the same time the then-governor promised billions of dollars in state-funded infrastructure.
