Feds play candid camera with Gov. Blagojevich


Federal authorities used a video camera as part of their cache of tools to investigate Gov. Blagojevich in the final weeks of 2008 before his arrest, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

The camera, which likely was remote-controlled, was trained on the Friends of Blagojevich offices, 4147 N. Ravenswood, to help FBI agents identify individuals entering and leaving the campaign offices -- and to identify who was talking on bugs agents covertly planted inside. Federal authorities used a video camera to keep an eye on everyone coming and going from Gov. Blagojevich's campaign offices -- and to keep track of who was talking on the bugs secretly planted inside.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is likely among the numerous individuals recorded because he called Blagojevich's campaign office Dec. 3 to discuss his preferences for the seat.
