“The man who said Abraham Lincoln would roll over in his grave if he knew that Governor Rod Blagojevich had tried to sell a senate seat is stepping down from his post.
Patrick Fitzgerald, the U.S. Attorney who made his name for taking down corrupt, high-profile politicians, Wednesday announced his resignation from the U.S. Attorney’s Office effective June 30.
“Mr. Fitzgerald notified the White House, Attorney General Eric Holder, and U.S. Sens. Richard Durbin and Mark Kirk this morning of his decision to step down from the presidentially appointed post that he has held since Sept. 1, 2001, making him the longest-serving U.S. Attorney ever in Chicago,” he said in a release.
Fitzgerald, 51, lists two Illinois governors and a bevy of politically connected people to his list of convictions: Blagojevich, George Ryan, Ed Vrdolyak, Robert Sorich, Al Sanchez (hired truck), Issac Corothers, et. al. He has been the head of the Chicago U.S. Attorney’s office for more than a decade, making him the longest serving U.S. Attorney in Chicago history.
“When I was selected for this position in 2001, I said that it was one of the greatest opportunities that one could ever hope for, and I believe that even more now after having the privilege of working alongside hundreds of dedicated prosecutors and agents. I have tried not to get in their way,” Fitzgerald said in a statement. “I extend my deepest appreciation to the attorneys and staff for their determined commitment to public service. This was a great office when I arrived, and I have no doubt that it will continue to be a great office.”
In a statement, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said, “Our nation is fortunate to have public servants of Patrick Fitzgerald’s caliber and integrity.””
