Rod Blagojevich’s campaign war chest of approximately $2M had been frozen since his indictment in April. Now the judge has allowed a payment of $19,700 from the Friends of Blagojevich fund to cover some of his debts.

Also, Gov Quinn signed a bill yesterday proposed by Rep Jack Franks (D-Marengo) to prevent corrupt indicted elected officials from cashing in on their crimes. Funny thing is it has no effect on what they do to get elected and stay in office – just if they get caught. And it doesn’t affect convicted politicians’ moneymaking after they get out of prison.
Don’t know if Jungle Patti still has her website. But, the bill would not affect any money she brings in.
I understand Milorad’s book – but I don’t get his not being paid for his radio shows [see below] or his Elvis video. He is actually working for the pay.
I looked for the bill name and can’t find it.
