Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s top lawyer in his criminal case, Edward Genson, is leaving the case now that a judge has ruled that undercover recordings of the governor could be given to the state Senate for his impeachment trial, the Chicago Tribune is reporting.
“I never require a client to do what I way, but I do require them to at least listen,” Genson said, wishing Blagojevich good luck.
Asked about a $500,000 payment he apparently received from campaign cash, Genson said, “It’s none of your guys’ business.”
Is Genson saying that Blagojevich hasn’t been listening to him? That sounds rather arrogant. That doesn’t sound like Blagojevich, does it?
You know, its unethical and illegal to use campaign funds for personal expenses such as buying a fishing boat, paying your taxes or paying your criminal attorney in your corruption case. It’s nice to see that no matter how bad things get, Blagojevich does not change.
