Rod Blagojevich In Real Trouble This Time

First, his lawyers dropped out because hell if they were going to get paid the salary of a lowly public defender. Then, that whole Jesse Jackson Jr. thing reared it’s ugly head.

Rod Blagojevich Has Money Trouble With Rezko...And Saks Fifth Avenue

You would think for all the IRS claims they spent on clothes, the Rod Blagojevichs would look less like they just rolled out of a badger-infested laundry pile. At least when the GOP took Sarah Palin on her multi-thousand-dollar shopping spree at Neimans, she’s pulled the look together. IRS Agent Shari Schindler just testified that... Read more »

In case you don’t get enough of Rod Blagojevich’s attention whoring just watching it at regular intervals on local and national news networks as they cover his corruption trial, he’s going to give you, his dedicated fan, a first-person running commentary about what he’s thinking, feeling and pretending not to do using Twitter.
