Reporting with Natasha Korecki
Next on the stand is someone we've seen before -- IRS agent and numbers cruncher Shari Shindler.
With charts and graphs, she's explaining a flow of money from Tony Rezko's Rezmar Corp. to Patti Blagojevich's firm, River Realty.
Prosecutors noted that nowhere on the Blagojevich family's tax returns -- which were publicly released while Rod was governor -- is there any indication that Rezko money went to Patti.
The Blagojeviches' income peaked in 2004 at $392,392. By 2008 -- the year we hear recordings of Blagojevich angsting about his cash flow -- it's down to $226,795.
Patti has left the room for this witness, as she always does when she's the subject of testimony.
