Feds Freeze Blago's Campaign Dough

Campaign fund has $3.6 million

Gov. Rod Blagojevich's attorney says federal prosecutors will try to freeze the embattled Democrat's campaign fund.

Attorney Ed Genson says the political fund received a letter from federal prosecutors this week that indicates their intent to try to freeze its money.
Blagojevich's last campaign finance report shows the Friends of Blagojevich fund had $3.6 million in the bank as of June 30.
Republican Gov. George Ryan's campaign fund was frozen after being charged in his corruption scandal. It was later convicted of racketeering.
Friends of Blagojevich isn't charged in the federal corruption complaint that led to Blagojevich's arrest last week. A message seeking comment was left at the fund's Chicago offices Thursday.
