Illinois Dem Senate Candidate Giannoulias Subpoenaed In Blago Trial
Illinois Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias was subpoenaed to testify in the Rod Blagojevich trial.
CBS2 Chicago reported:
First it was President Barack Obama, then White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, now U.S. Senate Candidate Alexi Giannoulias is joining the Rod Blagojevich corruption trial subpoena list.
Giannoulias is in the middle of a hard fought campaign against Congressman Mark Kirk for the right to fill the U.S. Senate seat once held by President Obama.
So there’s no doubt that being dragged into the Blagojevich trial is not welcome news for the Democratic candidate’s campaign.
The first term state treasurer was walking in Sunday’s Gay Pride Parade when CBS 2 caught up with him.
When asked what he’ll be testifying about, Giannoulias said he probably won’t be testifying. Why not?
