Bye Bye Blago: Ex-Ill Gov Heads off to Prison in Colo.

Ex-Gov on NBC's Celebrity Apprentice

Ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich, the guy who had an acute case of rambling on and on, may be a bit more careful now that he’s behind bars.

The Illinois governor, aka “Blago”, reported to prison Thursday morning at the Federal Correctional Institution Englewood in suburban Denver, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Now Blago will also be known as inmate No. 40892-424.

Earlier in the day, he left his Ravenswood Manor home in Chicago, the Sun-Times reported. Cameramen and photographers and reporters chronicled his departure as he left to serve 14 years for his high-profile public corruption conviction.

“I’m leaving with a heavy heart, a clear conscience and I have high, high hopes for the future,” said Blagojevich, according to the Sun-Times.

“Saying goodbye is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do,” Blagojevich said. “I’ll see you when I see you.”
