Blagojevich in Jail
Contest Directions: After two trials, an appearance on Celebrity Apprentice and a plea for mercy, Rod Blagojevich (Democrat) was sentenced today to 14 years in federal prison, after the former Illinois governor guilty on 18 counts involving the attempted sale of a U.S. Senate seat, illegal shakedowns for campaign contributions and lying to federal agents. Prosecutors asked for 20 years, but since the seat was not yet sold and no cash exchanged hands, Blago "got away" with only 14 years. Selling Senate seats ain't as easy as it seemed... Interestingly enough, former Illinois governor George Ryan (Republican), predecessor to Blago, was also convicted on corruption charges, landing him in prison for 6.5 years. Ryan gets out of prison in July 2013. One has to wonder if the courts lengthy sentence was meant to send a message for future governors.
Photoshop anything related to Rod Blagojevich getting sentenced and serving time in jail. E.g. show evidence that was used in court, or how Blago will spend his prison days - these are just some ideas.
