Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s onetime chief of staff and running buddy Lon Monk pleaded guilty today for a second time to crimes tied to the Blagojevich administration.
Monk, 51, admitted to attempting to extort a horse-racing businessman for a campaign contribution in exchange for getting a bill signed.
Monk has agreed to serve 24 month in prison and is cooperating with investigators.
The clock is ticking in Blagoland.
