Prosecutor Reid Schar is kicking off a series of testimony about the relationship between Rod Blagojevich and Jesse Jackson Jr.
"Let's talk about Congressman Jackson," Schar said. "Fair to say, sir, that you were not a big fan of Congressman Jackson?"
"Yes," answered Blagojevich.
Schar goes on to ask if Blagojevich promised a job to Jackson's wife in exchange for a campaign contribution, which Jackson testified when the defense called him to the stand early in its case.
Blagojevich leans forward, hands folded, as he answers: "That's absolutely false and not true."
