“Rod Blagojevich Found Guilty on 17 counts. Is It a Turning Point for Illinois?”
The Christian Science Monitor
06.27.11Barry Pollack comments on the June 27 federal jury conviction finding former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich guilty of 17 of the 20 counts against him for corruption including relating to the appointment to fill President Obama’s former Senate seat. According to Pollack, the case confirmed that successful verdicts for the defense are always more difficult to win in a retrial than the first. In the Blagojevich case, the first trial “became, effectively, a dress rehearsal for the government to see what worked for them and what did not work for them,” says Pollack.
