Gov. Rob Blagojevich

Rob Blagojevich (D-Gov. of Illinois)

Blagojevich served Illinois in the capacity of governor from 2003 until he was impeached January 29, 2009, by the Illinois House of Representatives following his arrest for federal corruption charges in which he tried to “auction off” Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat. He was charged with bribery and attempted conspiracy of wiretapping and mail fraud. Blagojevich has proclaimed his innocence, written a book—and had his lawyers lobby to let him appear on a reality TV show.
