Blago’s ‘Go-to Guy’ Dead of Apparent Aspirin Overdose


Christopher Kelly, Rod Blagojevich’s former chief fund-raiser, died yesterday morning of what is being called an aspirin overdose. The married father of three was indicted for fraud along with Blagojevich in April and was supposed to report to authorities on Friday for incarceration in a separate tax-offense case. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that an unknown woman, identified as his “girlfriend,” dropped him off at a hospital and that police are now searching for “Kelly’s girl.” [Chicago Sun-Times]
