Blago's chief counsel back on the stand

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

Susan Lichtenstein left Blagojevich's administration abruptly in 2004.

Last week, Lichtenstein testified about Rezko's access in Blagojevich's administration, namely that he attended her interview for chief counsel and internal strategy sessions with the governor. Prosecutors charge that Rezko was allowed inner access into state government because he raised big money for the governor.
Lichtenstein continues on cross examination this morning with defense lawyer William Ziegelmueller.
Court starts up at about 8:45 a.m.

Here's some more information from Lichtenstein's company bio:

Susan R. Lichtenstein, age 49, is Corporate Vice President, General Counsel
and Corporate Secretary of Baxter International. Prior to joining Baxter in
March 2005, Ms. Lichtenstein was a partner with McDermott Will & Emery. She
joined the law firm after having served as general counsel to Illinois Governor
Rod Blagojevich from 2003 to 2004. Ms. Lichtenstein served as senior vice
president, general counsel and corporate secretary for Tellabs, Inc. from 2000
to 2002. From 1994 to 2000, Ms. Lichtenstein held several positions with Ameritech Corporation, including senior vice
president, general counsel and corporate secretary from 1999 to 2000.

I thought under the Democrats, this State was going to be free of scandal! Well, it is business as usual and far worse.

Don't even get me started on Taxes!

Rezko is going to raise taxes to pay for social security, raise taxes to pay for medicare, raise taxes for health care, and the rich keep getting richer....He really is not a Saint. Wake up America. His name says it all.
