    FILE - This Dec. 10, 2008 file photo by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John H. White from the Chicago Sun-Times shows Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich leaving his home in Chicago through a back alley a day after he was arrested on federal corruption charges. On Thursday, May 30, 2013, White and the entire full-time photography staff was laid off by the Chicago Sun-Times in a move that the newspaper's management said resulted from a need to shift toward more online video.  The Sun-Times Media company didn't immediately comment on how many jobs were affected, but the national Newspaper Guild issued a statement saying 28 employees lost their jobs. The layoffs included photographers and editors at the Sun-Times' sister publications in the suburbs. (AP Photo/Chicago Sun-Times, John H. White, File)

    In this Aug. 14, 2012 photo, former White House Chief of Staff William Daley take part in a discussion during a meeting of The Chicago Economic Club. Daley, a Chicago Democrat, is considering a run for Illinois governor in 2014. Another Democrat considering a run is Attorney General Lisa Madigan. A bid by the two would mean a primary challenge to Gov. Pat Quinn, the longtime political outsider and activist on liberal causes who ascended to the job after Rod Blagojevich was ousted from office in a corruption scandal. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
