Blago Reports to Prison


Rod Blagojevich reports to prison today to begin a 14-year sentence for corruption, but not before making one last attempt to shape public opinion about his time as governor. 

 

Blagojevich put up a campaign-style defense of his record during a 15-minute speech to a crowd of supporters and reporters outside his Chicago home Wednesday night.  He said that he helped people, and pointed to initiatives like his All Kids health care program and free mass transit rides for seniors. 

 

Blagojevich said he took responsibility for his actions, and admitted that he should have shown more “humility” in office.  But he also expressed confidence that his conviction would be overturned on appeal.
