Report; Illinois Governor Taken Into Federal Custody
The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was pulled from his home in Chicago and put in federal custody Tuesday morning.
Gov. Rod Blagojevich was taken into federal custody at his North Side home, The Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday, the next step in a three-year federal corruption investigation of "pay-to-play politics" in the governor's administration.
The Tribune said federal authorities were permitted by a judge to record the governor secretly before the November election after raising concerns that a replacement for President-elect Barack Obama would be tainted. That's the latest in an investigation that has included recordings of the governor and the cooperation of one of his closest friends.
The U.S. attorney's office would not confirm the information to FOX News.
A Blagojevich spokesman said he was unaware of the development.
"Haven't heard anything -- you are first to call," Lucio Guerrero said in an e-mail.
