Rod Blagojevich is now heard on tape saying that the next U.S. Senator must satisfy three criteria: "Legal, personal and political."
This is how top aide John Harris testified Blagojevich defined each one.
Legal: "The legal investigation of his administration and his family finances."
Personal: "His personal economic security his need to secure some sort of economic future for himself. Someone who can put pressure on the Department of Justice to back off on the federal investigation."
Political: "His political situation."
