An area in the prison that holds ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is "one of the saddest places on Earth," says his wife.
It's a far cry from their Ravenswood, Ill., home, where the family lived for years while Blagojevich was governor. That home, listed at $1.07 million, was recently taken off the market.
Rod Blagojevich is serving 14 years for corruption. He was convicted on 18 counts after FBI wiretaps revealed him describing the opportunity to exchange an appointment to President Barack Obama's old U.S. Senate seat for campaign cash.
After a family visit in April, Blagojevich's attorneys told a Chicago TV station that their client wasn't happy about rules that only allowed his younger daughter to sit on his lap, while his older daughter was only permitted one hug.
