Patti Blagojevich Subpoenaed

Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s wife, Patti, has been subpoenaed for documents in part of the federal investigation into alleged corruption by her husband.

The Associated Press reports:

CHICAGO – Patti Blagojevich has been served with a federal subpoena seeking documents, notes or e-mails related to people or entities ranging from former gubernatorial fund raisers to her real estate dealings.

Attorney Raymond Pijon told the Chicago Sun-Times the wife of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich is cooperating with federal investigators. However, Pijon said that does not mean she will flip on her husband.

Blagojevich was removed from office Jan. 29 after an impeachment trial by Illinois lawmakers that was triggered by his arrest on federal corruption charges.

Patti Blagojevich was overheard on FBI wiretaps talking about alleged schemes involving firing an editorial writer at the Chicago Tribune in exchange for help with financing a Wrigley Field deal. She was overheard in an alleged plot for an appointment or job for herself in exchange for her husband appointing someone to the U.S. Senate seat.
