Blago’s Closing Argument

He wants it his way: Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who’s so far shunned his own impeachment trial in favor of a media blitz, has just made a request to put in an appearance tomorrow, before the prosecutor’s closing arguments. When Illinois Senate President John Cullerton announced the news—adding that Blago says he’ll offer no testimony and no questions—several state senators smiled and shook their heads, The Chicago Sun-Times reports. The governor is expected to be impeached.
