Former Illinois Governor Rod “Blago” Blagojevich Sentenced to 14 years in Prison on Corruption Charges
As the band Chicago sang … “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” … especially when you are guilty as sin of doing things the Chicago Way.
“Everybody needs a little time away.”
I heard Blago say,
“From each other.”
“Even former disgraced governors need a holiday.
Far away, from each other”
Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been sentenced to 14 years in prison on corruption charges for trying to sell Barack Obama’s Illinois Senate seat to the highest bidder. Blago made a final plea to the court acknowledging his guilt and saying that he was “unbelievably sorry.” The plea fell on deaf ears as Blago received one of the longest for any politician in state history. And rightfully so.
Disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in prison after he made a final plea for leniency, acknowledging his guilt and saying, “I am unbelievably sorry.”
