Illinois Supreme Court Disbars Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich departs his Chicago home in 2012. On Tuesday, Trump commuted the 14-year sentence of Blagojevich, who has been serving a prison term after being convicted of corruption charges.

CHICAGO — Disgraced former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been officially disbarred.

The Illinois Supreme Court announced on Monday that it revoked Blagojevich’s law license.

The announcement was not a surprise, as Blagojevich didn’t even attend a March hearing in which the matter was discussed and indicated afterward that he had no intention of practicing law again.

Blagojevich was released from a federal prison in Colorado in February after his 14-year sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump.

He recently signed on to host a podcast in Chicago called “The Lightning Rod.”
