Blagojevich's Daughter Criticizes Obama Over Not Commuting Sentence
CHICAGO (AP) —
A daughter of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is criticizing former President Barack Obama for not granting early release to her father, who's serving prison time for corruption charges.
In an emotional letter, 20-year-old Amy Blagojevich called Obama "spineless" for not commuting her father's sentence.
Blagojevich's wife, Patti, posted the letter on her Facebook page.
Blagojevich is in the fourth year of a 14-year sentence on corruption convictions, including trying to sell Obama's U.S. Senate seat after he became president.
The ex-governor petitioned Obama for a commutation, and both Amy and her sister wrote letters asking Obama to act.
