From the Chicago Tribune May 28, 2010.
“Blagojevich arrest mug shot released”
“The United States Department of Justice has released the official booking photo of Rod Blagojevich, who was arrested at his Chicago home on Dec. 9, 2008 and later impeached and removed from office.
The release came in response to a Freedom of Information Act request made by WGN-Ch. 9.
The then-governor is seen in the jogging suit he was wearing on the morning of his arrest, when federal agents picked him up in the early hours.
Blagojevich is to go to trial on June 3 on federal charges of trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama, and leveraging the powers of his office to enrich himself and a close ring of associates.
The charges include racketeering, attempted extortion, bribery, conspiracy to commit bribery and conspiracy to commit extortion. ”
Note from above:
“The charges include racketeering, attempted extortion, bribery, conspiracy to commit bribery and conspiracy to commit extortion. ”
Maybe we are being heard.
I am still waiting to hear if the prosecutors responded to the request to delay the trial.
