The woman who lost the 2006 governor's race to Rod Blagojevoch says the former Illinois governor earned his 14-year prison sentence. Judy Baar Topinka, now Illinois's Comptroller, said Blagojevich was true to form until the end.
Topinka says she feels bad for Blagojevich's family, his two young daughters in particular. But she was quick to say that 14-years is fair for the crimes Blagojevoch was convicted of. The former governor will likely serve 12-years of his sentence in federal prison.
