Raymond Pijon told the Chicago Sun-Times the wife of former Gov. Rod
Blagojevich is cooperating with federal investigators. However,
Pijon said that does not mean she will flip on her husband.
Blagojevich was removed from office Jan. 29
after an impeachment trial by Illinois lawmakers that was triggered
by his arrest on federal corruption charges.
Patti Blagojevich was overheard on FBI wiretaps
talking about alleged schemes involving firing an editorial writer
at the Chicago Tribune in exchange for help with financing a Wrigley
Field deal. She was also overheard in an alleged plot for an
appointment or job for herself in exchange for her husband
appointing someone to the U.S. Senate seat.
