Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's chief defense attorney, Edward Genson, announced Friday that he is bailing out of the fraud and bribery case against the governor, strongly hinting that his client refused to listen to his advice. Blagojevich, facing charges of fraud conspiracy and solicitation of bribery, was impeached by the Illinois House earlier this month and faces trial in the Senate.
