Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich leaves the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse with his wife, Patti. In testimony about Blagojevich's intentions to fill Barack Obama's empty Senate seat, Sam Adam Sr. got Blagojevich's one-time chief of staff John Harris to agree that the governor did say, in effect, "I hate the idea of appointing Lisa Madigan, but if it's best for the people of Illinois, I'll go ahead and hold my nose and do it."
