Imprisoned Former Gov’s Home Taken Off The Market
A spokesman for Rod Blagojevich says the imprisoned former Illinois governor's family is no longer selling their Chicago home.
Glenn Selig tells WLS-TV in Chicago (http://bit.ly/GOLiRs) former Illinois first lady Patti Blagojevich has decided taking the house off the market is best for daughters Amy and Annie. Selig says Patti Blagojevich wants to avoid the stress of showing a house during a time already filled "with so much upheaval."
Earlier this month Rod Blagojevich started serving a 14-year sentence at a Colorado federal prison.
The house had been for sale since last year with an asking price of $1.07 million. The 13-room brick home is in Chicago's Ravenswood neighborhood.
The house was where FBI wiretaps captured Blagojevich talking. It's also from where federal agents led him away in handcuffs.
