Defense lawyer Aaron Goldstein has finished up a heated cross-examination of government witness and former chief of staff to Blagojevich John Harris. Union leader Tom Balanoff is next to take the stand.
Throughout the cross-examination, Goldstein earned almost objection after objection from the government, eventually leading into repeated scoldings from Judge James Zagel.
Balanoff and the SEIU labor union he works for helped President Obama's campaign and discussed his preferences and Obama's preferences for the vacant Senate seat with Blagojevich.
Prosecutor Reid Schar is questioning Balanoff about the Senate seat allegations now.
