Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich will begin serving 14-year sentence on corruption convictionFormer 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."
He was convicted of corruption in June 2011 after a jury returned 17 guilty verdicts against him. Among other allegations, he was accused of trying to profit as he considered whom to appoint to take Barack Obama's open Senate seat.
Blagojevich called his impending prison stint a "dark and hard journey," and said he should have been more humble.
"We are so grateful and will never ever forget your kindness to us," he told the crowd, which occasionally chanted slogans such as "Free our governor."

Well if you had done that to begin with, Cupcake, you might not be going to the slammer right now.
Oh, and be sure to tell Bubba howdy when you get there. You'll be able to recognize Bubba by that big-azz grin on his face, and the "come here" look in his eye.)
Y'all be sure and have lotsa fun now.

I think "cupcake" might get a Chicago style welcome from the Aryan Brotherhood, and find out his present net worth is a half-pack of smokes.Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.-- Anonymous
Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.
The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
