CHICAGO (AP) - The governor of Illinois has returned to work - a day after he was arrested and accused of scheming to enrich himself by selling President-elect Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat.
Gov. Rod Blagojevich is out on bond and has denied any wrongdoing.
The governor left his home on Chicago's North Side early Wednesday and waved to the media before quickly getting into a dark SUV without talking to the reporters gathered outside his home.
A short time later, Blagojevich's SUV arrived at his office at the state office building. The vehicle pulled into an underground garage, driving past the mass of photographers gathered outside.
