Did Democrat Rod Blago pick a good lawyer?

Our embattled governor wasted no time in hiring an attorney with the necessary experience of defending a client in court who has already been tried and convicted by public opinion. A graduate of Northwestern Law, Ed Genson is a Chicago native. He uses a motorized scooter or a cane due to a neurological disorder that affects how he walks. Genson has built a quite a reputation around himself over the years. Notably, he has defended the following high profile clients:

*R. Kelly, found not guilty of 14 child pornography-related counts

*Conrad Black, former Sun-Times publisher, found guilty of three counts of mail and wire fraud and one count of obstruction of justice.

*Mel Reynolds, Democratic ex-congressman, had sex with an underage campaign volunteer, found guilty of 12 counts including sexual assault, obstruction of justice and solicitation of child pornography.

*Larry Warner, Republican George Ryan’s co-defendant, and Scott Fawell, Ryan’s top aide. Both are in prison for their involvement with Ryan.
