Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich [[ blah-GOY-oh-vitch ]] is about to speak to reporters following his release from prison. His 14-year sentence for extortion and corruption was commuted yesterday by President Trump. Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin later said Illinois and Washington should move quickly to establish stricter ethics requirements for elected officials.       The former mayor of New York City will make his debut on the debate stage tonight. Michael Bloomberg will debate his fellow Democratic presidential candidates in Las Vegas just a few days before the Nevada caucuses. Bloomberg's campaign has spent lots of money on advertising so far.        At least a dozen firms are working on developing a vaccine for COVID-19. French drug giant Sanofi joined the hunt yesterday to find something that will end the threat of the latest coronavirus outbreak. Researchers say it may take up to a year before it can begin clinical trials.       Two Democratic presidential candidates are being sued by George Zimmerman over their tweets about the Trayvon Martin case. Zimmerman's lawsuit goes after former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg [[ BOOT-edge-edge ]] and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren for their tweets about Martin on February 5th. Zimmerman went on trial as he was accused of killing Martin, but was acquitted.        Police are investigating the reported shooting death of up and coming rapper Pop Smoke. Steve Lurie with the Los Angeles Police Department says they got a call this morning from someone back east, stating the home of a friend in Hollywood Hills was being broken into by multiple suspects. Officials say at least one of the men was wearing a black ski mask.       General Motors plans to start laying off an estimated 15-hundred workers in Thailand starting in June. Earlier this week, the automaker said it would sell its plants in the country to China's Great Wall Motors. Under the terms of the sales agreement, all of the plants' employees would be laid off.
