Feds play candid camera with Gov. Blagojevich
« on: January 14, 2009, 01:57:44 PM »
Federal authorities used a video camera as part of their cache of tools to investigate Gov. Blagojevich in the final weeks of 2008 before his arrest, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

The camera, which likely was remote-controlled, was trained on the Friends of Blagojevich offices, 4147 N. Ravenswood, to help FBI agents identify individuals entering and leaving the campaign offices -- and to identify who was talking on bugs agents covertly planted inside.

In addition, more phone lines and cell phones were tapped in the investigation than the government previously disclosed -- including the cell phones of at least three members of the governor's inner circle and two phones inside the campaign office -- capturing dozens of individuals in the days when the governor was pondering a U.S. Senate pick and when horsetrading for the seat was rampant, sources said. U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is likely among the numerous individuals recorded because he called Blagojevich's campaign office Dec. 3 to discuss his preferences for the seat.


Now that Burris is seated, the main event continues.  :popcorn:

I'm still waiting to see if any of the Obama transition team pops up.
