Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich makes a statement to reporters outside his Chicago home one day before reporting to federal prison

This morning the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an effort from former IL governor Rod Blagojevich to get the high court to reconsider his conviction on corruption charges.

The justices did not comment during today's ruling. Late in 2008, Blagojevich was arrested for political corruption and later convicted on several charges, most notably for his attempts to control who would replace Barack Obama in the Senate following his first presidential election victory.

In 2016, the court refused to hear an appeal by Blagojevich that maintained there was no clear line among the lower courts between legal and illegal trading of political favors. A few years later, he was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison. "From the beginning we've had faith in the system and have felt the court would bring Rod back to us".

With legal avenues closed, Blagojevich's wife says they'll have to put their "faith elsewhere and find another way".

She didn't mention President Donald Trump.

Blagojevich attorney Len Goodman said Monday his client's punishment was disproportional.

Blagojevich was hoping for a hearing from the Supreme Court but is out of luck.

The former governor's wife Patti Blagojevich is unhappy with the court's decision.

Supreme Court won't hear appeal by former... The justices on Monday made a decision to hear none of the cases on their current weekly list-and denied dozens.

It is the second time the court declined to grant cert to Blagojevich, report the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago-Sun Times. A spokesperson for a public relations firm retained by the Blagojevich family asked that news organizations "respect her privacy". Blago was actually on Trump's Celebrity Apprentice show in 2010.
