Blagojevich legal hurdle: a crime, or just talk?
Tapes of Ill. governor discussing Senate pick may fall into a legal gray area
[...] some lawyers are beginning to suggest that the juiciest part of the case against Mr. Blagojevich, the part involving the Senate seat, may be less than airtight. There is no evidence, at least none that has been disclosed, that the governor actually received anything of value — and the Senate appointment has yet to be made.
Fitzgerald is apparently just another clawing, social climbing, politically motivated, political gangster.
