Redfield quoted in article on Rezko trial

The trial of Illinois political fundraiser Antoin Rezko is making headlines around the country. While Rezko's friend Gov. Rod Blagojevich allegedly participated in the kickback schemes, he has not been charged and denies any wrongdoing.

The article "Closing Arguments Set for Tony Rezko Corruption Trial" that appeared in eNews 2.0 on May 12 cites UIS Professor Kent Redfield on the subject.

Redfield noted in part that developments in the trial have made it "increasingly difficult" for Blagojevich "to be effective and for people to take him seriously."
