Appeals court hears arguments for Blagojevich retrial

CHICAGO — Former Governor Rod Blagojevich has been moved to a lower-security part of the prison where he is serving a 14-year sentence on corruption charges.

The Sun-Times reports Blagojevich was able to walk outside his wife Patti, and their two daughters, during a recent visit.

He’s serving his time at Federal Correctional Institution Englewood near Denver.

His attorney says Blagojevich has daily contact with his family, and teaches the history of war battles to other inmates.

    Wow! Has it already been almost 3 years? How time flies when you are having a good time ah Rod? Good news is Blago only has 10 more to go and Jesse will be out soon! Of course Jesse took responsibility and accountability, did not cost the taxpayers addition money for his defence and his wife is going to jail next while Fatty Patti is not. Because we know Fatty Patty has a real Dick Mell for a father! ha, ha,, ha. Let me guess Rod is moving to the rear of the building right? Ha, ha, ha, ha…Oh my God…Police Officers losing their life in the line of duty, and we are still reading about DIRT-BAG Blago the self made victim with his partner in crime Fatty Patty? Ha, ha, ha.Why do we not hear about all the other inmates doing time and their families? Or the families of fallen police officers? Or the families of fallen soldiers? Oh silly me they are not as important as princess Blago! I am personally glad to hear Blago is adapting to his new residents and is accepting his real faith which is 14 years. I have yet to hear a public apology to the Illinois Taxpayers? Hey maybe Rod can explain his history of being ” tough on crime as long as it was not the crimes Blago and his administration committed against the Taxpayers, or how the only Clemency he signed in office was for some homeless guy Fatty Patti was dating and Tony Recko his partner in crime to his history class? I am sure the inmates would love to hear his philosophy on crime and punishment. To Law Enforcement, the Federal Judge who sentenced him, and the reporters who broke the story. Thank you, thank you, thank you and may god bless all of you. A sincere Thank you is not much compensation for the lost of your fallen brothers and sisters, but it is all I have. God bless.

    Honestly I think he should get parole in a couple years. I’m a republican, but any person who didn’t kill someone, almost kill someone or steal a lot of money serving over five years is insane. Now, Blago has peobably done all three, but that’s not the point.
