Patti Blagojevich “Disappointed” in Supreme Court’s Refusal to Hear Former Governor’s Appeal

Patti Blagojevich, wife of former Governor Rod Blagojevich, who is currently serving a 14-year sentence on corruption charges, says she was disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision to refuse to hear an appeal to the former governor’s case. “Rod, Amy, Annie and I could not be more disappointed in the decision today by the U.S. Supreme Court,” said Blagojevich, in a statement on Monday. “From the beginning we’ve had faith in the system and have felt the court would bring Rod back to us. Now, with the judiciary no longer an option, we’ll have to put our faith elsewhere and find another way.” Blagojevich appeared Monday on Fox’s Tucker Carlson, who gave her a platform to appeal to President Trump for a pardon. “My husband is probably the only person in the history of the United States who is serving any kind of sentence for simply asking for campaign contributions,” she said. “Never took a bribe, never took a kickback … yet he serves a sentence that’s twice as long as anyone else.” (Sun-Times) (Fox)
