Rod Blagojevich Trial Day 20: More on political fund-raising

| No Comments

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich trial is now on the count dealing with whether he lied to the FBI about his fund-raising and on Day 19 jurors got a primer about the political fund-raising business--learning about call lists and bundlers. Sun-Times federal courts reporter Natasha Korecki has a look at Day 20 and a recap of Day 19.

On Wednesday, jurors heard testimony where a former Blagojevich finance director--the paid professional fund-raiser--called people who did not raise the cash Blagojevich expected a "bulls----er."

Keep tabs on the testimony in posts over at the Sun-Times Blago Blog.
