Washington, DC-(Effingham Radio)- Illinois’ Republican congressmen don’t want to see Rod Blagojevich released from prison early.
The state’s seven Republicans yesterday all signed a letter to President Trump formally opposing any clemency for the former Illinois governor.
Congressman Darin LaHood, who helped write the letter, said yesterday that releasing Blagojevich early would send a terrible message to prosecutors who are looking to fight public corruption.
LaHood says Blagojevich has never accepted his guilt or showed any remorse for his crimes.
