As U.S. Attorney, Mr. Fitzgerald serves as the district's top federal law enforcement official. Most recently in the news for his successful prosecution of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on corruption charges, he also led the investigation into who leaked the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame to the press, leading to the conviction of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby in 2007, and previously had drawn national attention with his conviction of former Illinois Governor George Ryan in 2006 for selling illegal state licenses. While in the Justice Department, he helped build the first criminal case against Osama bin Laden years before the 9/11 attacks.

While the U.S. Attorney's Office is known for its anticorruption work, it devotes many more resources to the fight against guns, gangs and violence. Mr. Fitzgerald has committed himself personally to the implementation of Project Safe Neighborhoods as part of a concerted effort with the Chicago Police Department and other state and federal law enforcement agencies to reduce gun violence.
