Federal prosecutors this week filed a motion seeking to delay the upcoming sentencing date for Antoin Rezko — Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s former top fundraiser and adviser who was convicted of corruption in June.

Recent published reports have suggested that Rezko is now cooperating with federal authorities based on comments from attorneys who represent various officials named in court documents.
