Former Governor Wants President Obama To End Sentence

Effingham, IL / Effingham Radio

(Chicago, IL)  —  Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is in prison because he tried to sell Barack Obama’s old seat in the U.S. Senate. Now, Blagojevich is looking to President Obama to get him out. Blagojevich’s legal team filed a request last week for a presidential commutation. The Justice Department confirms it received the request. But the White House is silent on what the president may do.
