Letters Show Blago Harsh Boss


Letters written on behalf of a former top aide to Rod Blagojevich say the former governor was “irrationally demanding” in his dealings with staff.

 

The letters were a factor in a judge’s decision to sentence John Harris to just 10 days in jail for his role in the effort to sell President Obama’s former Senate seat.

 

One of Harris’s predecessors as chief of staff says Blagojevich once ordered him to fire the entire legal staff for the governor’s office and to hire an unemployed lawyer that Blagojevich met in line at a Starbucks.

 

The letters urged the court to go easy on Harris, because they say Blagojevich’s conduct made it very difficult for subordinates to stop his excesses.
