Before court on Wednesday morning, Blagojevich messaged "Amy's graduation last night was beautiful," a reference to the eighth grade graduation of his daughter. Patti Blagojevich, his wife filed last night--just after hearing opening statements outlining corruption charges against her husband--and herself, though she is not charged with anything.
