Tapes Show Billionaire J.B. Pritzker Sought Office From Blagojevich

CHICAGO (AP) — FBI wiretaps from a 2008 investigation of then-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich capture current Democratic candidate for governor, billionaire J.B. Pritzker, speaking to Blagojevich about a state job appointment. The Chicago Tribune posted the previously unreleased recordings Wednesday. Pritzker doesn’t express interest in a U.S. senate seat appointment in the recordings. But he says to Blagojevich about the Illinois treasurer’s job: “That’s the one I would want.”
