Governor JB Pritzker has another former Governor to keep tabs on now that Rod Blagojevich is back in the public eye. And yesterday it was Rod’s brother Rob who took shots at the current Governor for not being there for his brother while in prison or now that he has been released. Rob told reporters in Chicago that it’s shameful that “He wanted something from my brother and when he didn’t get it now he’s moved on and he’s now bitter against my brother.” Pritzker says that wasn’t and isn’t the case.
What Pritzker is known to have wanted from Rod Blagojevich years ago was to be appointed Treasurer if Alexi Giannoulias was appointed to the open Senate seat. Neither of those two things happened.
