Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich will be speaking publicly for the last time before reporting to prison this afternoon. Current Governor Pat Quinn says the state is a much better place since Blagojevich was impeached.
"We're going to have two governors, two former governors, in jail at the same time - that's something that we never, ever want to have happen. And I think that it's important that the people of IL who are good and true always come out first."
Quinn says he wishes the best to Blagojevich's family. Blagojevich is scheduled to report to a Colorado prison to begin his 14-year prison sentence tomorrow.
