Chicago SunTimes - Rezko Lawyer: Don't Trust Key Witness
Chicago Tribune - Blagojevich's Name Surfaces Early in Case
It's kind of like being named the "enterprise" in a RICO case. You can be perfectly legitimate, have committed no wrongdoing, and suddenly you find that someone has named you in the same sentence with someone allegedly committing criminality. RICO enterprises are often legitimate businesses. But does the public really understand that the "enterprise" is not part of the criminality when this "enterprise" gets named in a RICO indictment? One has to wonder if Blagojevich and Obama are feeling this same sting right now.
