I believe the sentence was fair
I believe the sentence was too harsh
I think he should have gotten 10yrs, but no more
I believe he has been humiliated enough, no need for jail, just fine him
I have zero sympathy for corrupt public officials. I can't vote in this poll because I think the sentence was too lenient. Blago deserved the max.

He just kept digging his hole deeper. If he would have been humble and contrite he would have probably gotten a lot less. He just didn't get it just like a lot of politicians. He got what he deserved.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

I think his sentence was enhanced due to the judge believing he lied his ass off on the witness stand
