SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Dave Koehler offered the following statement Tuesday after President Donald Trump commuted the 14-year prison sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich by after just seven years served:

“As one of 59 votes to remove Rod Blagojevich from office, I stand by that decision. Had he apologized to the people of Illinois for this behavior, I might have more sympathy to him. But he has for a decade exhibited nothing but defiant arrogance and a total unwillingness to own up to what recorded evidence plainly proves he did. I look forward to working with my colleagues this spring to pass a comprehensive ethics reform package that will discourage the likes of Rod Blagojevich from holding office in our state.”
