The Blago trial…

Patrick Fitzgerald and his prosecutors did a great job and I thank the jury for their service.

Today former Governor Blagoevich was found guilty on only one charge, lying to federal investigators. This campaign is disappointed that the former Governor was not found guilty on the other charges. The verdict demonstrates the importance of the Office of Attorney General to take an active role in investigating and prosecuting corrupt public officials. It was clear from this case that the overworked and understaffed US attorneys need more resources to effectively investigate and prosecute the former governor. I believe it is up to the Attorney General of Illinois to provide the resources necessary to assist federal prosecutors. As Attorney General I will allocate the resources of the office to help the US Attorney as he moves forward with re-trying Blago.
