Corruption is expensive

Just released campaign disclosure reports show that Rod Blagojevich's campaign has racked up $687,839 in legal fees to Winston & Strawn, former Governor Jim Thompson's firm.

Winston & Strawn is the law firm that represented George Ryan in his recent trial and conviction. And it is the firm defending Rod against nine state and federal corruption investigations.

UPDATE: Figure is actually $839,656. Found another $151,817.
