Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich testified in his retrial on federal corruption charges Thursday, saying he had waited two and a half years for the opportunity.
“I used to be your governor and I’m here today to tell you the truth,” Blagojevich said. Last summer, defense attorneys backed out of their promise to put him on the stand in his first trial, which resulted in a hung jury on all but one count. On Thursday, Blagojevich seized his turn as a witness.
