Pilgrim Baptist Church

Earlier this week, a jury couldn't decide if former Governor Rod Blagojevich was guilty, but a Chicago church is 100% positive that he promised it money.
The church never saw a dime and has now filed a lawsuit against the State of Illinois for the money.
The grant was awarded to the Loop Lab School, which rented space within that administration building.
At the time, the former Governor called the slip-up “a bureaucratic mistake”, but the Illinois Auditor General’s office later determined a member of Blagojevich’s staff directed the money to the school and not the church.
