Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has asked the Illinois attorney general and the state House of Representatives to agree to appoint a special attorney to represent him in pending legal matters related to his alleged misconduct. Blagojevich's attorney, Edward Genson, asked Attorney General Lisa Madigan and the House of Representatives Special Investigative Committee that the governor be allowed to select state-paid lawyers to represent him in the matters because the attorney general has a conflict of interest.
