In case you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show “America’s Morning News” - heard in Washington on WTNT-AM 570 and coast-to-coast via the Talk Radio Network - here’s what Tuesday’s newsmaker told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

Rod R. Blagojevich, Illinois’ embattled former governor, blamed the federal official who is prosecuting him - Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois - for the recent apparent suicide of Christopher Kelly, a former aide to Mr. Blagojevich.

Police have said Mr. Kelly apparently swallowed a significant amount of drugs - “both prescription and nonprescription.”

Mr. Blagojevich, the son of an immigrant steel factory worker, said his name would eventually be cleared of corruption charges. The former twice-elected governor, a Democrat, was arrested Dec. 9 by federal authorities after he purportedly tried to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama.
