Blagojevich Ready To Talk Before Heading Off To Prison

Posted by wlpo on March 14, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) – Rod Blagojevich on his last full day of freedom will do what he loved doing as governor and in defending himself
unsuccessfully against corruption charges. He will step up to a microphone and talk.

Blagojevich is scheduled to deliver a last statement today, a day before he lands behind bars. His announcement will start precisely at 5:02, enabling prime time news to lead with his remarks.

Attorneys for the ex-governor have said he wants to depart in a dignified way, without a media frenzy.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
