Former Governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich was sentenced today to serve 14 years in prison. Blago was convicted of 18 charges of corruption, most memorable being the time he tried to sell President Obama’s vacant Senate seat after the 2008 election.
“Blago” was the top trending topic on Twitter today after the verdict was announced. Here’s what some of the tweets had to say:
Blago (D-IL) tried to sell a Senate seat, shook down a children’s hospital, & tried to get hostile newspaper editors fired. Good riddance.
When asked for comment Rod Blagojevich said his prison sentence was not fuckin’ golden.
Blagojevich gets 14 years in prison for corruption. His hair gets the death sentence.
I bet we all remember where we were when Blagojevich was sentenced, since it happened just a few minutes ago.
Blago gets 14 years. Conrad Murray gets 4 years. Casey Anthony walks.
Is 14 years too many for Blagojevich? No. I’d rather he be sentenced until the Cubs are in the World Series.
For comedians, Rod Blagojevich is the grift that keeps on giving.
Has anyone started a “Blago in jail” Twitter account yet?
Concerning that last tweet: I’m on it.
