Rajinder Bedi, the onetime $111,708-a-year managing director of the state's
Office of Trade & Investment under Rod Blagojevich -- who and had discussions about Jesse Jackson Jr.'s appointment to the U.S. Senate -- could take the stand in the ex-governor's corruption trial as early as this afternoon.

The Chicago Sun-Times previously reported that Bedi met with Rod Blagojevich's brother, Robert, in late October, 2008, to discuss fund-raising in connection with Jackson's appointment.

Federal prosecutors have alleged that Indian fund-raiser Raghuveer Nayak was an emissary who told the Blagojevich camp that Jackson would raise money in exchange for an appointment. Nayak is not expected to be called to the stand.

Is there any connection between Raghuveer, Rezko and Alsammarae?
