Tribune Investigation Finds Pritzker Sought Public Office From Blagojevich

A new investigation in the Chicago Tribune revealed that back in 2008, Democratic gubernatorial candidate JB Pritzker courted then-governor Rod Blagojevich in a series of phone calls, seeking a position in government. 

The phone calls between the two men were picked up on wiretaps as the FBI investigated Blagojevich.

Morning Shift talks Jeff Coen, one of the Tribune reporters who broke the story, about the content of those calls.
