After Tom Rosenberg threatened to go to authorities about an alleged shakedown scheme, the behind-the-scenes players were in a frenzy, according to Stuart Levine's testimony and tapes played today.
Blagojevich fund-raiser Christopher Kelly called William Cellini and Stuart Levine -- at one point he talked to both at the same time on different cell phones. That's according to calls played today.
Kelly could be heard on a recording -- the first time we hear Kelly on tape -- arranging to meet with Levine at Rezko's office. We're told the meeting was set to discuss Rosenberg's threats to go to authorities.
We'll soon find out what they discussed.
"He could hear Mr. Kelly talking to me," Levine explained to jurors. "Mr. Kelly was talking on one cell phone with Mr. Cellini and while on the phone with Mr. Cellini, picked up another cell phone and called me."
