It appears Ousted governor is ready to serve his time...

Learned this morning that former IL Governor Rod Blagojevich wants to forgo his retrial next month. He was convicted on only one count of perjury to FBI agents last year and drew a hung jury on other counts. Those counts are related to the events that led to his arrest by the FBI, his impeachment and removal from the office of Governor over two years ago.

You can read a round-up over at the Capitol Fax. Blago according to some experts may not succeed in this motion. Other experts agree that this isn't another attempt at grandstanding by Blago, that is mostly what he's known for anyway. It may also be about money as the former Governor who once was known for his fundraising prowess had largely dried up his funds.
