Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Mike Bost (IL-12) and the entire Illinois GOP House Delegation sent a letter to President Trump sharing their concerns over White House talks of pardoning and/or commuting the sentence on former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. After sending the letter, Rep. Bost released this statement:
“I served on Illinois' House committee to impeach Governor Blagojevich and I believe that he received the sentence he deserved,” said Bost. “He violated the public trust and is an example of the absolute worst about politics. Granting clemency to Rod Blagojevich could set a very bad precedent regarding public corruption.”
