In a retrial, Rod Blagojevich is convicted of corruption stemming from the sale of President Obama's seat in the US Senate. The former Illinois governor says he's 'stunned.'
Illinois' redistricting plan is poised to turn half a dozen Republican seats Democratic and could help Democrats retake the House in 2012.
Prosecutors on Thursday interrogated former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich for the first time during his retrial on federal charges of corruption. It was a combative hour.
The retrial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich opens Wednesday in federal court. In the first trial, the jury deadlocked on 23 of 24 charges related to the handling of President Obama's former US Senate seat.
When the Blagojevich retrial begins a month before Chicago's mayoral election, Rahm Emanuel's name is expected to appear prominently in testimony. That's posing a problem for his image-makers.
An impeachment probe is under way in the Illinois House. A petition is also before the state’s high court.
