My Fight for Freedom and Justice
Foreword by Leonard L. Cavise
Finalist, INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award, Foreword Reviews, 2015
“Robert Blagojevich contributes an important personal perspective on the evolving debate about wrongful prosecutions and the federalization of criminal law. The writing style is engaging ... remarkably objective and detached.”—Bill Barnhart, coauthor of John Paul Stevens: An Independent Life and Kerner: The Conflict of Intangible Rights
“This book demonstrates in a clear and smart manner the problems in our criminal justice system. I think that books such as this one will promote understanding, interest, and examination by the general public. I believe that democracy can only flourish with a well-informed public.”—Phillip A. Turner, former assistant US attorney in Chicago and current Chicago criminal defense attorney
“Fundraiser A is more than simply a memoir. It is, at its best, a self-help manual for the wrongly accused.” —Chapter 16
Most people will recognize the name Robert Blagojevich as the brother of ill-fated Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. But many don’t know why Robert came to work for his brother or how he came to be named as a defendant in the criminal trial accusing Rod of attempting to sell Barack Obama’s former Senate seat to the highest bidder after the presidential election of 2008. Now, Robert offers a brutally honest inside look at what it is like to face the full force and power of the federal government and maintain innocence in a high-profile criminal case.
