Give the Blagos credit: They certainly know how to come up with novel ways to make money for a couple of folks who are unemployed.
The basis of her suit?
A claim by the agency's Rick Roberts that Patti is using an e-mail list from the CCIL to hawk her husband's book.
Patti says that the league had no outreach list when she was hired to use her political connections to raise money; she contends that she dumped her personal e-mail list into the league's lap and has every right to use it.
Roberts, though, has said that league donors were upset to be contacted by Patti regarding her husband's book.
The real question though, is this: Is it really possible to defame Patti Blagojevich at this point?
Well, that might not technically be the legal question, but that's not what this seems to be about.
The other 20 percent, we can safely assume, is some sort of cash settlement.
How very Blagojevichian.
