Reporting with Natasha Korecki
Jurors saw Rod Blagojevich's credit card statements last week and an IRS accounting of his expenses showed he spent $400,000 on high-end clothing.
Blagojevich didn't try tapping his campaign fund to pay for those custom suits, though.
Defense lawyer Michael Gillespie asked former Friends of Blagojevich campaign finance director Danielle Stilz if Rod Blagojevich ever told her: 'I just bought some suits, cover those?' "
"No," she said.
Stilz also testified that Blagojevich had a system in place where the campaign fund would do newspaper clip checks to see if donors had negative write-ups about them.
If anything negative written about that person, they'd send back the checks, she said.
