In our continuing coverage of people not likely to be invited to a college campus to speak on ethics, we are thrilled to report that the former Illinois governor Rod R. Blagojevich will speak on Tuesday at Northwestern University. The event is titled “Ethics in Politics: An evening with Former Governor Rod Blagojevich.”
Mr. Blagojevich, you might recall, awaits trial on federal corruption charges for his role in trying to profit from his power to appoint a successor to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama. He was removed from office last year.
The College Democrats are sponsoring his visit. —Don Troop
