Harris steps down as chief of staff

CHICAGO A Blagojevich spokesman said Friday that John Harris had resigned. He provided no other details.

A message was left with Harris' attorney.

Blagojevich and Harris were arrested Tuesday morning at their homes. Federal authorities accused them of scheming so Blagojevich could enrich himself through his power to appoint President-elect Barack Obama's replacement in the U.S. Senate.

Both Blagojevich and Harris were released on bond.
