Rod Blagojevich Selling Chicago Home Before Prison Stint


CHICAGO -- Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his wife are trying to sell their Chicago home that once served as Illinois' de facto governor's mansion, his attorneys revealed Friday, as the couple scrambles to raise money before he goes to prison for corruption.

At the court hearing, Blagojevich also stood before Judge James Zagel and said that he fully understood that the government could end up seizing their home of more than a decade if he tried to flee or otherwise violates the conditions of his $450,000 bond.
