You all thought that former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was down for the count, didn't you? But what you failed to account for was the unsinkable Blagojevich spirit!
The former Illinois governor began serving his 14-year sentence for corruption in March at Englewood, a low-security facility in Littleton, Colo., and spent his early days inside working in the kitchen washing pots and pans six days a week. But those days of drudgery are over — he's finally been bumped up to a coveted library position, his former defense attorney Sam Adam Jr. told WBBM Newsradio this weekend.
"He's either in the library, or just about to get in the library," Adam said.
You can't keep a guy like this down. Today he's shelving books, next week he might be keeping books in the laundry. And after that, who knows?! Is it too much to assume that we might be looking at a future warden's assistant?
I don't think so. This guy has the goods!
