Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who was impeached and convicted last month by his state's legislature after federal prosecutors charged him with political corruption, is angling to rehire a top Chicago criminal defense attorney for his legal team. Attorney Michael Ettinger, who is representing Blagojevich's brother, Robert, said that the former governor wants to rehire attorney Edward Genson, who quit working on the case last month because he disagreed with a national media blitz strategy.
