[Chicago’s] Hinshaw & Culbertson received $13,628.82 during the second half of 2008 and roughly $46,000 before June 30. The Am Law Daily reported earlier this year that Hinshaw corporate partner Anthony Jacob was representing Friends of Blagojevich…

Campaign disclosure forms show that Blago’s fund paid $500,000 to Edward Genson’s firm, Genson & Gillespie, on December 18. That same day the fund also paid $100,000 to Sheldon Sorosky’s firm, Kaplan & Sorosky.

None of these lawyers will be representing Blagojevich in his impeachment trial.
