Chicago (CNN) - Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is scheduled to arrive at a Colorado federal prison Thursday to begin serving a 14-year sentence on a corruption conviction.
"This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do," he told a crowd of sign-wielding supporters outside his Chicago home Wednesday. "But this is the law and we follow the law."
14 years! I see people get one third of that reckless manslaughter.
He definitely deserves to be in prison, but 14 years! Wow!
Can't wait to see the first picture of him with a prison haircut!
14 years seems excessive; when the globally reaching crimes of the Bush Administration resulted in no punishment at all.
Finally, closure....we can get on with our lives now and hopefully won't hear anymore of him until he is parolled, which will probably be in two years or less.
