Attorneys for former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich are giving the judge yet another reason why Blago should be free. They filed paperwork with the court yesterday, claiming Blagojevich never made any clear promises to give up a job or sell President Obama's old senate seat when he solicited campaign cash from his donors. Therefore, they claim he never engaged in corruption.
Blagojevich was convicted on 18-counts of corruption back in 2010 but his attorneys are asking the judge to overturn the conviction.
