Profiling Ed Genson, Blagojevich's Attorney
Nor was it a surprise when Genson took up his case earlier this week. The attorney could probably paper the courthouse walls with the cash he's earned representing high-profile defendants like R&B superstar R. Kelly, former governor George Ryan's codefendant Larry Warner, and a career's worth of other clients that reads like a who's who of public corruptionâ€”and the Chicago mob. But Genson may not be in this one for the money. Blagojevich is said to be in financial trouble.
