Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich jailed for corruption

Editor's note: Rod Blagojevich, a Democrat who served as Illinois governor until his impeachment in 2009, is serving a 14-year sentence on corruption charges including taking bribes to influence who would replace President Obama in the Senate. His appeal alleged a litany of errors on the part of the trial judge, the @AP reports, and argued he'd merely engaged in legal, everyday political horse-trading. - Tricia
