Blagojevich headed to prison today
Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich left his Chicago home this morning and is heading to Colorado to begin a 14-year federal prison term for corruption.
He is expected to report to the prison by 2 o’clock this afternoon.
Blagojevich is the state's second governor in a row to be sent to prison for corruption.
The famously talkative Democrat embraced the public spotlight one last time yesterday evening, seeming to relish the attention of reporters' microphones and hovering television helicopters.
