Alonzo “Lon” Monk , Blagojevich’s first chief of staff, is the prosecution’s second witness. He was also charged along with Blagojevich in this case but Monk reached a plea agreement with prosecutors and is now a cooperating witness.
Lon Monk remains on the witness stand this afternoon, laying the foundation for a variety of alleged schemes supposedly participated in by former Gov. Blagojevich.
He described how then-Congressman Rahm Emanuel said he wanted a state grant for the Chicago Academy, a school in the congressman’s district, but that then-Gov. Blagojevich said the grant should be held up until more was learned about a possible fundraiser to be held for Blagojevich by the congressman’s brother, a California talent agent.
