The SEIU, which endorsed President-elect Barack Obama and spent millions on his behalf, was mentioned several times in the 78-page affidavit.
Blagojevich engaged in discussions with his chief of staff and a unnamed SEIU official about a "three-way" deal to make Blagojevich head of an SEIU-affiliated organization called "Change to Win" in exchange for appointing the SEIU's preferred candidate to Obama's vacated Senate seat. Blagojevich asked he be paid a $250,000-$300,000 salary for the labor slot.
One of the other conditions of the plan was that President-elect Barack Obama would need to support Change to Win's legislative agenda. There were also discussions with the SEIU about getting Warren Buffett to fund a different 501(c)4 that Blagojevich could direct.
On November 12, Blagojevich met with the unnamed SEIU official, who was representing the SEIU's preferred candidate for the Senate.
