Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich heads to prison in Colorado tomorrow. The second straight Illinois governor to be thrown in jail. Blagojevich's predecessor, George Ryan, has been in prison since 2007, serving a six-and-a half-year term. Blagojevich will begin his fourteen-year term tomorrow. Ryan, a Republican, and Blagojevich, a Democrat, show that corruption knows no party boundaries in the state of Illinois.
Blagojevich ended his televised farewell address today with the words, "I'll see you around." Not anytime soon.
