Libby Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald Gets Engaged

Congrats to long-time bachelor and Scooter Libby prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. He's getting married.

Patrick J. Fitzgerald, 46, the U.S. attorney in Chicago since September 2001, plans to marry Jennifer Letzkus, 34, a teacher, spokesman Randall Samborn confirmed.

Samborn said the couple plan a "small private wedding" but declined to say exactly when or where. He also would not provide Letzkus's hometown.

    I wish him, her and them happiness.

    (At the risk of sounding sexist or whatever) I hope she can cook and has a tolerance for him working late - 'cause if we all remember Fitz' history correctly, he stacks the empty pizza boxes and has an empty fridge.

    already? He was doing great work here before he was dragged away.

    but he was rather fearlessly going after the pervasive corruption that is the hallmark of the Daley administration. I think someone pulled some strings to get him pulled away.

    I'm not following you here. (none / 0) (#12)

    Corruption is rampant in the Daley administration, as it was with George Ryan. Why would you not want prosecutions in these cases?
