| No Comments

The criminal corruption trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich continues on Tuesday after the July 4 break with Day 19 bringing testimony about fund-raising efforts of Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) at a time he was lobbying for the appointment to replace Barack Obama in the Senate. Chicago Sun-Times federal courts reporter Natasha Korecki has the Day 19 look ahead and a recap of court action from last week, including the Blagojevich $400,000 shopping sprees.

The Blago Blog, helmed by the Sun-Times Blagojevich trial team, posts must read reports from the courtroom throughout the day.
