Blago Boycotts Trial

Has Rod Blagojevich gone rogue? Last night, his lead attorney withdrew from his defense team, hinting, according to The Washington Post, "that his client did not follow his advice." Now Blago says he will boycott his Senate trial. He will not defend himself or send witnesses or lawyers. "Under these rules, I'm not getting a fair trial," he said. "They're just hanging me." Hearings to remove him from office begin next week.
