Rod Blagojevich: Prison, Populism & the Presidency (#25)

When he took office in 2003, Rod Blagojevich was the first Democrat elected to be Illinois’ governor in 30 years. Riding a populist wave, he racked up progressive political victories until he was taken into federal custody on corruption charges in 2008. After serving eight years of his 14-year sentence, Blagojevich had his sentence commuted by President Donald Trump in February 2020. In this provocative two-part series, the former governor tells all, revealing his frustration, wisdom, populist insights and 2020 political forecasts. Listen to more of former Gov. Blagojevich weekly on the “Lightning Rod” podcast.   The Political Trade is brought to you by the award-winning Luckbox magazine.
