Former Blagojevich Chief of Staff Lon Monk Delivers Testimony

It's always sad to see something come between two great friends. Especially when that “something” is multiple federal charges. Former chief of staff and Blagojevich insider Alonzo “Lon” Monk took the stand as a witness for the prosecution in the trial of the former governor. Monk got a deal after he pleaded guilty to conspiring to shake down a racetrack owner for a large campaign contribution. Andy Shaw, Executive Director of the Better Government Association, talks about the impact of Monk's testimony.
