Rod Blagojevich's impeachment trial is scheduled to start on Monday."](CNN) - Prominent Chicago defense lawyer Ed Genson said Friday he intends to resign as attorney for embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich in the criminal case against the governor.
"I never require a client to do what I say but I do require them to at least listen to what I say. ... I wish the governor good luck and godspeed," Genson said in brief remarks to reporters.
Genson would not elaborate on his reasons for withdrawing from the case or any conversations he had with Blagojevich about his leaving the case.
Blago.. is Bottomline A_hole of Today's politics.
Poor misunderstood Blago.
Can you really blame Chicago Defense Attorney Ed Genson? How do you defend a big mouth client like Gov. Rod Blagojevich?
It's obvious that Genson is part of the nefarious plot to railroad this honorable Governor and raise taxes! Riiiiiiight...
This fool is NOT wrapped too tight. I watched his press conference and this idiot was talking about "cowboys". HA! HA! It was so comedic because you could see him sinking more and more into his own quick sand of insanity.
I hope he likes ORANGE, because this fool is heading straight to the JAIL HOUSE quicker than you can say "cuckoo".
