I’ve previously covered pay to play in Illinois. The Blagojevich complaint has prompted reports that the new law was fueling a “dash for cash.”
Gov. Blagojevich was on a mad dash for $2.5 million in campaign cash in advance of a new state law that will stop him from taking political donations from state contractors as of Jan. 1, federal prosecutors alleged Tuesday.
And the governor allegedly was asking two of his closest advisers — lobbyists John Wyma and Alonzo Monk — for help, according to court documents and sources.
