Statement by Senator Tim Bivins about the indictment of former
Governor Rod Blagojevich
, April 2 by US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald:

“Six years of ‘pay to play’ and backroom deals have resulted in a sweeping indictment of our former Governor and several of his colleagues. It has been expected since the Governor was first arrested, and it shows that lawmakers took the correct action earlier this year by impeaching and removing Rod Blagojevich from office. This should put to rest the doubts of those who said that US Attorney Fitzgerald might not have a strong case.”
