Something changed today, at least behind the scenes, with Blagojevich's law school buddy and long time aid, Alonzo "lon" Monk, taking the stand as a government witness.
The politician turned defendant approached the microphones this morning (Despite yesterday's warning from James Zagel). Blagojevich spouted a new version of his innocent man speech saying he was ready for the lock box on truth to be opened. While he was walking away, a reporter from Chicago's WLS-TV shouted a question regarding his feelings about his close friend testifying against him. Blagojevich didn't respond.
But a person traveling in his entourage told me today Blagojevich was visibly upset by the time they reached the elevators. The source didn't quote Blago verbatim but said the former Governor uttered things to the effect that he could not believe this was happening.
