Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's hiring practices may become an issue in the trial of indicted businessman/disgraced Obama fundraiser Tony Rezko (at right). The Sun-Times reports:
One of the lists, Rezko's lawyers said, is a spreadsheet of "recommended candidates" for state jobs "made by or through Rezko" to Blagojevich's Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. That list includes 39 recommendations, including one for Joseph Aramanda, a Glenview businessman whom sources have identified as the unnamed "Individual D" in prosecutors' case against Rezko. Aramanda allegedly was part of a kickback scheme involving Rezko and co-defendant Stuart Levine, who has pleaded guilty and is to testify in Rezko's trial.
Aramanda was to be considered for a "budget/financial aid" job. But like 32 of the people on the list, state records show he wasn't hired.
