Blagojevich Corruption in Center Field

The corruption charges against Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich just keep growing.

Now the governor is accused of threatening to block the sale of Wrigley Field to the state unless the Tribune backed off it's critcism of him. Reportedly he tried to shake down the Chicago Tribune using the Cubs and Wrigley field as leverage.

Of the editorial board, Blag reportedly said, "Fire all those bleeping people." His wife Patty is reported to have had more "colorful" words about the paper, also.

WBBM-TV: Blagojevich portrays himself as a Cubs fan. Now, as CBS 2's Derrick Blakley reports, charges against the governor include allegations he threatened to block the sale of Wrigley Field unless the Chicago Tribune backed off its criticism of him. He even tried to get the editorial board fired.
