Flashback: Rod Blagojevich, Luis Gutierrez, and the alleged FALN terrorist

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
A high-ranking official in Gov. [Rod Blagojevich]'s office spent nearly two years in a federal prison for refusing to aid a government terrorism probe into a series of bombings in Chicago and New York City.

Steven Guerra, Blagojevich's $120,000-a-year deputy chief of staff for community services, was identified by federal prosecutors as a member of the Puerto Rican separatist group, FALN, which was behind a wave of violence and killings in the 1970s and early 1980s...

Gov. Blagojevich's office said Guerra disclosed his felony conviction to the administration before his 2003 hiring. Aides said the governor intends to stand by Guerra. He was recommended for the job by Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.)
Here's more on the Luis Gutierrez-FALN connection. Is Luis Gutierrez committed to the U.S. Constitution or helping terrorists?
