Gee, Another Coincidence
Never in a million years would we have expected this to happen:
- Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has always maintained he wants the public to hear all of the undercover government recordings in his federal corruption case, and now maybe he'll get his wish.
Chicago police were looking into an early-morning burglary Friday at the South Side offices of his lawyers. Computers containing copies of the nearly 500 hours of recordings in the Blagojevich case and other sensitive evidence were stolen, sources said.
It was unclear whether the burglary was carried out by thieves knowing what they were after or was a smash-and-grab by criminals looking for cash or easy-to-move merchandise. But the burglars didn't appear to be terribly sophisticated, setting off an alarm about 4 a.m.
In Chicago? Illinois? Connected lawyers' offices? Who knows what else? Yeah, it's all legit.
