Senate candidate Andy Martin will hold a sidewalk news conference Thursday, January 31st at 2:00 P.M. to disclose that Governor Rod Blagojevich has dumped the Illinois Attorney General’s office and hired a private law firm to defend the governor in a lawsuit filed by U.

Martin filed his case in DuPage County Circuit Court. Docket Number 2007 MR 1310.
Martin is challenging Blagojevich’s illegal fund transfers to the RTA, and the RTA’s violation of its governing statute by approving fictitious budgets that do not reflect either economic or accounting reality.
The governor has hired the Elmhurst law firm of Kubiesa, Spiroff, Gosselar to defend him.
“The governor is obviously taking this legal challenge to his authority very seriously,” Martin stated.
