DURBIN OFFICE STATEMENT ON SUBPEONA ISSUED BY FORMER GOV. ROD BLAGOJEVICH

[CHICAGO] - Joe Shoemaker, spokesman for U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) made the following statement regarding a subpoena issued by Rod Blagojevich's defense team:
.
"On April 16, 2010 Senator Durbin was served a subpoena by Rod Blagojevich's defense attorneys.

Given the former Governor's previous antics regarding this case, it's no surprise he is casting a wide net - apparently from the President down to dogcatcher.

We have accepted service of the subpoena and will cooperate with the court in any reasonable way. The matter has been referred to counsel, and our office will not be commenting further."
