Rod Blagojevich's brother pleads not guilty to three new criminal charges
I'm an innocent man. I've done nothing wrong. I'm looking forward to the day I can get my name back.”— Robert Blagojevich
A day after his brother, former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, pleaded not guilty to corruption charges, Robert Blagojevich appeared in federal court in Chicago on Thursday morning and entered the same plea to similar accusations.
Robert Blagojevich, who ran his brother's campaign fund in part of 2008, pleaded not guilty to three new criminal counts, including extortion conspiracy, attempted extortion and bribery conspiracy.
After the hearing, Blagojevich said he is looking forward to a trial.
Blago brother says he didn't do anything wrong either.
One day after his more famous sibling pleaded not guilty to rehashed set of corruption charges, Robert Blagojevich did the same.
That the two pled separatley could have poetic significance. Rob says his relationship with Rod has been "strained" because of the ongoing case and Blago's media blitz.
