Prosecutors have asked that several phone calls presented at the first corruption trial of Rod Blagojevich be edited and shortened during presentation for the second trial.

The government wants to edit 6 calls. At least three of the calls involve possible appointments to Barack Obama's old Senate seat.

According to prosecutors, the defense does not object to editing two of the recordings but objects to shortening the other four.

The former governor's re-trial is scheduled to begin later this month.
