U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who gave us the classic, "would make Lincoln roll over in his grave" line after Blago's arrest, is staying in Chicago. U.S. Senator Dick Durbin made the announcement in a letter addressed to Illinois Congressmen, saying, "...Patrick Fitzgerald has agreed to continue his service as U.S. attorney in the Northern District." Fitzgerald was confirmed in October 2001. [CBS 2]
