Eye View Chicago Accu-Weather.Blago’s Testimony Could Bring In Gale Force Winds To The Windy City

CHICAGO (Reuters) – Even Rod Blagojevich’s lawyer finds him a bit strange, which may provide the key to the former Illinois governor’s strategy at his upcoming corruption trial — he was all talk, but no action.

Among the 24 counts of fraud, conspiracy, bridery and racketeering that could land Blagojevich a long prison sentence are charges he dangled President Barack Obama’s vacant U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder or demanded a cabinet post for himself in exchange for naming an Obama aid to the seat.

Since his arrest at dawn on December 9, 2008, Blagojevich has repeated his mantra of innocence in nonstop interviews, in a book, on the airwaves as a local disc jockey, and to anyone who would listen on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” television show.

His attorney told an interviewer that he had neither the capability nor the intention of shutting Blagojevich up.

“He’s a celebrity idiot, but he is a celebrity,” Sam Adam Jr. told Chicago Magazine of plans to let his client testify.

Quieting Blagojevich would never work, he added.

“I can’t. But you’re going to see when he testifies. He’s truly funny — totally self-absorbed but truly funny,” Adams said. “He’s also one of the most insecure people I’ve ever met. It’s such a strange dynamic.”

Another possible wild card in Blagojevich’s long-awaited trial that begins on Thursday is whether it will entangle Obama and his aides in Illinois’ hurly-burly political theater.

The trial, which is expected to last up to four months, may expose discrepancies in how members of Obama’s future administration characterized its contacts with Blagojevich  after the November 2008 election.

Chicago weather forecasts call for gale force winds entering the “windy city”.
