Just one person raised more money than Tony Rezko, evidence at trial showed.
Today the government put online an electronic version of two charts put into evidence Thursday. They spell out Blagojevich’s top contributors and fundraisers from 2001-2004.
Rezko holds the No. 2 spot with $1.4 million.
FBI Special Agent Charles Willenborg put together the first chart based on information contained in a Blagojevich campaign database obtained by the government.
Another witness, Kelly Glynn, who once directed campaign finances for Blagojevich and maintained the database, said sometimes contributions brought in by Chris Kelly were credited to someone else.
On cross examination, she said Kelly's $475,000, could actually be higher. (Which the defense was hoping jurors would then conclude Rezko's numbers cannot be trusted.) Kelly was another top fund-raiser and adviser to the government. He also was recently indicted on tax-related charges.
Here's the names and dollar amounts:
