Patti Blagojevich Pens Op-Ed Seeking Clemency For Husband
(Washington, DC) — Illinois’ former first lady may be hoping to catch the eye of President Trump. Patti Blagojevich penned an op-ed this week in the Washington Examiner that paints her husband, Rod’s, 2008 arrest in the same kind of light as the Russia probe currently surrounding the president. Mrs. Blagojevich’s piece in the paper talks about sensational charges and hastily arranged press conferences to announce the charges. But the former Illinois first lady does not get to the meat of the case against her husband, that he promised official action only for political gain and that he tried to shake down a children’s hospital for a political contribution.
