Description

This in-depth look at Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's personal security guards revealed many problems within the Executive Protection Unit. Not only did the reporters uncover negligence and misconduct on the part of the police officers, but it found deeper flaws in the way the system was set up to abuse taxpayers' money. For example, tens of thousands of dollars were spent to drive police vehicles across the country for fund-raising and personal events.
