UPDATE ON POST BELOW: The Tribune is reporting this morning that Rod Blagojevich's campaign arranged the TV commercial at the school labeled as a "town hall meeting." That might get Blago off the hook with the feds, if the explanation is true, but it doesn't explain the mislabeling of the event. It was the first closed-to-the-town town hall meeting in history.
Officials in the governor's office said Blagojevich had no public events that day. Campaign aides said the governor made the comments to people called by his campaign to come to Waters Elementary School, located just blocks from the governor's North Side home. No media were notified of the Saturday event at the public school, which was closed for the day, campaign aides said.
