Evidence Against Blago: This Could Take a While

Hundreds of hours of audio recordings included in evidence

Reems of paper and boxes of audio tapes are just part of what federal prosecutors have handed over to Rod Blagojevich's lawyers as evidence in the corruption case against the former governor.

There are 400 hours of recorded calls and at least 1 million pages of documents, the Sun-Times reported today.

There are an additional 300 boxes of documents Blagojevich's lawyers can go through, another 2 million documents involved in the case and at least another 500 hours of recorded phone calls that were deemed not pertinent, lawyers in the case say.

The index alone for the collection of evidence is 185 pages, and there are about 500 additional hours of recordings that have been deemed "not pertinent."
