The trial of Chris Kelly, another ex-aide and ex-fund-raiser to Gov. Blagojevich, has been postponed from November to Jan. 20. Kelly faces charges he cheated on his taxes by allegedly lying about gambling proceeds. U.S. District Judge Elaine Bucklo moved the trial at the request of Kelly's lawyer, Michael Monico. Monico cited a timing conflict as he also is representing former Ald. Edward R. Vrdolyak this September. Vrdolyak faces charges he took part in a kickback scheme involving the sale of a Gold Coast property with Stuart Levine. That means the Vrdolyak trial will see the same character who played a huge role in Tony Rezko's trial. Levine spent 15 days on the stand in Rezko's two-month trial.
