Rezko trial: Blagojevich told businessman he would make money

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Star witness Stuart Levine says he chartered a jet to New York and Gov. Blagojevich was a passenger.
Levine thanked Blagojevich for appointing him to a state hospital board.
Blagojevich allegedly replied:
“Never discuss any state board with me. You discuss them with Tony Rezko or Chris Kelly, but you stick with us, and you’ll do very well for yourself.”
Levine told the jury how he interpreted that statement: “I took it to mean I would have an opportunity to make a lot of money.”
