Chicago Sun-Times Indentifies More Names in Document Charging Gov. Blagojevich

Like so many of the political corruption documents filed by U.S. Attorneys, this one is filled with words like “individuals” and “advisers”. The Chicago Sun-Times took the time to figure out who the individuals were behind those rather vague descriptions.

CHICAGO — The Illinois Senate is poised to remove Gov. Blagojevich from office next month in the wake of the criminal charges that U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald announced Dec. 9.
The criminal complaint against the governor cites more than three dozen people, nine of whom have been charged with crimes. Only 15 of those people are identified by name, including the governor’s co-defendant, former chief of staff John Harris, and his former top fund-raisers and advisers, Chris Kelly and Tony Rezko, both now convicted of crimes.

ed it reveals wiretaps that prosecutors say show that the governor tried to sell the U.S. Senate seat once held by President-elect Barack Obama. He also allegedly threatened to kill a proposed deal to have the state provide financial assistance to Tribune Co. on a sale of Wrigley Field unless the Chicago Tribune fired certain editorial writers who had criticized him.
