Blagojevich, the foul mouthed former governor of my State, the first governnor in the history of the State of Illinois to be impeached and removed from office, will not have to pay rent for the next 14 years, as he will be serving time for that period after being sentenced today by Federal District Judge James Zagel.
Blagojevich is the fourth Illinois governor in the past four decades to be sentenced to prison, and he has received the longest sentence of any of them. His sentence is a substantial one and I hope it starts a trend in sentences imposed on corrupt politicians. 14 years is a long time, and I am sure the sentence imposed on Blagojevich has given corrupt politicians in Illinois something to think about today. Good
