"Republican insider and political operative Scott Fawell has given federal prosecutors a 45-page sworn statement directly implicating his onetime mentor former Gov. George Ryan and Republican businessman Larry Warner in wrongdoing.
The new details came in a prosecution court filing released Tuesday. In the motion, prosecutors are asking a federal judge overseeing Warner's case to remove Warner's attorney, Edward Genson, because of an alleged conflict of interest.
Fawell, already in prison for political corruption under Ryan, has been cooperating extensively with prosecutors in their investigations of Ryan, Warner and other potentially high-profile matters."
-- I guess Fawell isn't going to be on Ryan's Christmas card list this year. Perhaps the Gov. could pow-wow with Martha about how to deal with the clink.
