Ex-Gov. Blagojevich returns to Chicago, maintains innocence

Ex-Gov. Blagojevich returns to Chicago, maintains innocence

CHICAGO — Rod Blagojevich walked out of prison Tuesday after President Donald Trump cut short the 14-year prison sentence handed to the former Illinois governor for political corruption.

The Republican president said the punishment imposed on the Chicago Democrat and one-time contestant on Trump’s reality TV show “Celebrity Apprentice” was excessive.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

‘œSo he’ll be able to go back home with his family,’� Trump told reporters in Washington. ‘œThat was a tremendously powerful, ridiculous sentence in my opinion and in the opinion of many others.’�

The Chicago Tribune on Tuesday night posted a photo of thesilver-haired Blagojevich at Denver International Airport, where he later boarded a plane for Chicago.Blagojevich was famously fastidious about his dark hair as governor, but it went all white because hair dyes are banned in prison.

Promising he will have more to say in a Wednesday news conference, Blagojevich told WGN-TV he appreciated the president’s action.

‘œI’m profoundly grateful to President Trump and it’s a profound and everlasting gratitude,’� Blagojevich said. ‘œHe didn’t have to do this, he’s a Republican president and I was a Democratic governor. I’ll have a lot more to say tomorrow.’�

Blagojevich wouldn’t say what plans he had for the future, however he did talk a bit about his time in prison.

“I’ve learned a lot about the criminal justice system, how unfair it can be, how unjust it is to people of color,’� he said. ‘œI’ve drawn closer to God. There is divine intervention in all of this.’�

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

Blagojevich said he heard about his commutation when other inmates told him they saw it on the news,” he said, adding that he “had no inkling it was coming.”

The former governor told ABC-TV Chicago that his future plans are to “turn evil into good.’�

“I’m going to fight against the corrupt criminal justice system that all too often persecutes and prosecutes people who did nothing wrong, who over-sentences people, show no mercy, and who are in positions who have no accountability,” Blagojevich said. ‘œThey can do whatever they want. They can put you into prison for things that aren’t crimes.’�

Blagojevich, 63, hails from a state with a long history of pay-to-play schemes. He was convicted in 2011 of crimes that included seeking to sell an appointment to Barack Obama’s old Senate seat and trying to shake down a children’s hospital.

Trump had said repeatedly in recent years that he was considering taking executive action in Blagojevich’s case, only to back away from the idea.

One of Blagojevich’s lawyers said she refused to believe it at first when word of her client’s possible release began to spread, fearing that the president might not follow through.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

‘œWhen it became obvious it was real, I got tears in my eyes,” said Lauren Kaesberg. ‘œIt was overwhelming.’�

Others in Illinois, including the governor, said setting Blagojevich free was a mistake.

Trump ‘œhas abused his pardon power in inexplicable ways to reward his friends and condone corruption, and I deeply believe this pardon sends the wrong message at the wrong time,’� Gov. J.B. Pritzker said in a written statement.

Many Republicans agreed.

‘œIn a state where corrupt, machine-style politics is still all too common, it’s important that those found guilty serve their prison sentence in its entirety,” said the the chairman of the Illinois GOP, Tim Schneider.

Trump made clear that he saw similarities between efforts to investigate his own conduct and those who took down Blagojevich.

‘œIt was a prosecution by the same people – Comey, Fitzpatrick, the same group,” Trump said. He was referring to Patrick Fitzgerald, the former U.S. attorney who prosecuted Blagojevich and now represents former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired from the agency in May 2017.

Trump also granted clemency to financier Michael Milken, who served two years in prison in the early 1990s after pleading guilty to violating U.S. securities laws, and pardoned former New York Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik, who served just over three years for tax fraud and lying to the White House while being interviewed to be Homeland Security secretary.

The Illinois House in January 2009 voted 114-1 to impeach Blagojevich, and the state Senate voted unanimously to remove him, making him the first Illinois governor in history to be removed by lawmakers. He entered prison in March 2012.

Blagojevich’s wife, Patti, went on a media blitz in 2018 to encourage Trump to step in, praising the president and likening the investigation of her husband to special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election – a probe Trump long characterized as a ‘œwitch hunt.’�

Blagojevich’s conviction was notable, even in a state where four of the last 10 governors have gone to prison for corruption. Judge James Zagel – who sentenced Blagojevich to the longest prison term yet for an Illinois politician – said when a governor ‘œgoes bad, the fabric of Illinois is torn and disfigured.”

After his Dec. 9, 2008, arrest while still governor, Blagojevich became known for his foul-mouthed rants on wiretaps. On the most notorious recording, he gushed about profiting by naming someone to the seat Obama vacated to become president: ‘œI’ve got this thing and it’s f—— golden. And I’m just not giving it up for f—— nothing.’�

Prosecutors have balked at the notion long promoted by Blagojevich that he engaged in common political horse-trading and was a victim of an overzealous U.S. attorney. After Blagojevich’s arrest, Fitzgerald said the governor had gone on “a political corruption crime spree” that would make Abraham Lincoln turn over in his grave.

A joint statement from Fitzgerald and the lead prosecutors at Blagojevich’s trial, none of whom work in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago anymore, stopped short of criticizing Trump’s decision. But they highlighted the convictions, including for trying to shake down the children’s hospital, saying, ‘œMr. Blagojevich remains a felon.”

Mueller – a subject of Trump’s derision – was FBI director during the investigation into Blagojevich. Fitzgerald is now a private attorney for Comey, whom Trump dismissed from the agency in May 2017.

Trump expressed some sympathy for Blagojevich when he appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2010, before his first corruption trial started. When Trump “fired” Blagojevich as a contestant, he praised him for how he was fighting his criminal case, telling him, ‘œYou have a hell of a lot of guts.’�

Blagojevich’s first trial ended with the jury unable to reach a verdict, except for a single conviction, for lying to the FBI.

At his second trial in 2011, Blagojevich testified, describing himself as a flawed dreamer grounded in his parents’ working-class values. He sought to humanize himself to counteract the seemingly greedy governor heard on wiretap recordings played in court. He said the hours of FBI recordings were the ramblings of a politician who liked to think out loud.

He was convicted on 18 counts. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago in 2015 tossed out five of the convictions, including ones in which he offered to appoint someone to a high-paying job in the Senate.

The appeals court ordered the trial judge to resentence Blagojevich but suggested it would be appropriate to hand him the same sentence, given the gravity of the crimes.

“I’ve made a whole bunch of mistakes but I didn’t break any laws,” Blagojevich said in Denver before boarding his Chicago-bound commercial flight Tuesday night. “I crossed no lines. And the things I talked about doing were legal and this was routine politics and the ones who did it are the ones who broke the laws and the ones who frankly should meet and face some accountability.”

3 accused of stealing from stores in DuPage, crashing into Chicago police car

3 accused of stealing from stores in DuPage, crashing into Chicago police car

Three people are accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from stores in Wheaton and Elmhurst and then crashing into a Chicago police car while trying to escape.

Victor Williams, 30, of the 2600 block of East 77th Street in Chicago, is charged with felony burglary, retail theft and fleeing and eluding police. Bail was set Monday at $350,000.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

Joshlyn Allen, 19, of the 7600 block of South Yates Boulevard, Chicago, is charged with felony burglary and retail theft. Bail was set at $50,000.

Emiaya Shannon, 22, of the 500 block of West 77th Avenue in Merrillville, Indiana, is charged with felony burglary and retail theft. Bail was set at $50,000.

Prosecutors also have asked that Shannon’s probation on a November 2018 retail theft case out of Naperville, and a December 2018 retail theft case out of Willowbrook, be revoked. In the Willowbrook case, she was charged with stealing more than $4,600 of items, including perfume, from an Ulta store. In Naperville, she was charged with stealing items from an Ulta store.

Shannon and Allen also are wanted in Jackson County, Missouri, for failure to appear for January court dates related to October 2019 theft charges against them, according to Missouri court records.

Authorities said the trio entered the Ulta beauty store at 112 Danada Square in Wheaton around 4:50 p.m. Saturday and stole $4,000 worth of merchandise, including bottles of Chanel Chance Eau De Parfum.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

They then went to the Kohl’s department store at 310 S. Route 83 in Elmhurst and took $6,000 worth of items, including Nike- and Adidas-brand clothing, reports said.

Elmhurst police tried to stop them in the parking lot, but Williams drove into oncoming traffic, authorities said.

Police chased them by car and helicopter until the defendants’ car crashed into a Chicago police squad car.

The three are next due in court March 16.

Chicago officials: 200K efficient LED streetlights in place

Chicago officials: 200K efficient LED streetlights in place

CHICAGO — Chicago’s streets are now being illuminated by 200,000 LED streetlights that will significantly reduce the city’s electricity bills, transportation officials announced Monday.

Chicago’s Department of Transportation is aiming to install 270,000 LED streetlights by 2021, replacing high pressure sodium lights that officials said are less efficient. The city estimates the change will cut electricity costs by $100 million during the program’s first decade.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

The department also announced plans for a citywide lighting management system to better detect outages. Residents still are encouraged to report outages to the 311 system via phone call or text messages.

‘œToday marks a major milestone towards delivering safer, cleaner, more efficient, and more affordable lighting for Chicago’s residents and businesses, all while creating good, well-paying jobs across our city and saving our taxpayers millions of dollars,’� Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in a statement.

More installations are planned this year in communities on the city’s North and South sides.

Israeli Army: Hamas Hackers Tried to ‘seduce’ Soldiers

Israeli Army: Hamas Hackers Tried to ‘seduce’ Soldiers

The Israeli military on Sunday said it has thwarted an attempt by the Hamas militant group to hack soldiers’ phones by posing as young, attractive women on social media, striking up friendships and persuading them into downloading malware.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters that the phones of dozens of soldiers had been infected in recent months, although he said the army detected the scam early on and prevented any major secrets from reaching the Islamic militant group.

“We do not assess there is any significant breach of information,” the military spokesman said.

Conricus said this was the third attempt by Hamas to target male soldiers through fake social media accounts, most recently in July 2018. But he said this latest attempt was by far the most sophisticated.

He said Hamas used a number of social media platforms, including WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Telegram, to make contact with unsuspecting soldiers. Posing as young women on social media, the group struck up friendships with the soldiers, sending photos, texts and voice messages to them.

The “women” claimed to be new immigrants to explain their poor Hebrew, and even claimed to be deaf or hard of hearing as an excuse for texting, instead of speaking directly on the phone, Conricus said. The profiles appeared on multiple platforms, and he said the photos were disguised to make it difficult to “reverse track” them, giving the accounts additional authenticity.

“We see that the level of social engineering is much higher and much more advanced and sophisticated when compared to previous attempts done by Hamas,” he said. “We see that they’re of course learning and upping their game.”

Eventually, they sent the soldiers links to “seduce” them into downloading what they said was a Snapchat-like app to exchange photos that could quickly disappear, Conricus said. In reality, the links were to three malware programs — Catch&See, ZatuApp and GrixyApp — that allowed Hamas to gain access to the soldiers’ phones.

He said it was “very clear” that Hamas was behind the effort. He said the malware linked to known Hamas servers and at least one of the profiles had been used in a previous Hamas scam. There was no immediate comment from Hamas

Conricus declined to say how many soldiers had been targeted. But he said that dozens had downloaded the malware. He said soldiers had reported the suspicious activity relatively early on, allowing the army and the Shin Bet internal security service to monitor their phones. It is now in the process of removing the malware, he said.

Israel and Hamas, an Islamic movement that seeks Israel’s destruction, are bitter enemies that have fought three wars and numerous skirmishes since the group seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007.

The enemy sides have been holding indirect talks through Arab and U.N. mediators aimed at reaching a long-term truce under which Israel would ease a blockade on the Gaza Strip in exchange for Hamas assurances to maintain quiet.

But low-level fighting has persisted. Early Sunday, Israel carried out a number of airstrikes on Hamas targets in Gaza in response to the firing of two projectiles from Gaza into southern Israel. No casualties were reported on either side.

JJ Watt Marries Pro Soccer Player Kealia Ohai in the Bahamas

JJ Watt Marries Pro Soccer Player Kealia Ohai in the Bahamas

J.J. Watt is officially off-the-market, y’all!

The Houston Texans defensive end has a lot to celebrate, especially now that he’s married to pro soccer player, Kealia Ohai.

On Saturday, the two lovebirds tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in the Bahamas. For their destination wedding, many of the pair’s nearest and dearest were in attendance.

In fact, North Carolina Courage and USWNT star Crystal Dunn took to social media to show off her friend’s elegant bridal gown.

In the photo, the 28-year-old soccer star looks picture-perfect in a mermaid-style wedding dress.

And instead of wearing a typical strapless design, Kealia opted for a jewel-encrusted spaghetti strap piece, which featured a fully beaded and intricately embroidered bodice. Her tulle bottom appeared to be decked out in glitzy fabric and sequins.

While the newlyweds have yet to share details about their wedding celebration, the two certainly enjoyed their tropical getaway days leading up to their big day.

J.J. Watt Is Engaged to Pro Soccer Player Kealia Ohai

“my valentine now and forever,” the NFL star captioned an Instagram post, alongside a photo of him holding onto his soccer star. 

The two appeared to be soaking up the sun on a yacht, a day before they exchanged their vows.

The news of their wedding comes less than a year after they got engaged.

Back in May, Watt got down on one knee and popped the big question. “I’m the luckiest man in the world,” he wrote after announcing the happy news.

“Still can’t believe I get to be with you forever,” Ohai shared on Instagram with a photo of the magical moment her beau proposed. “I love you.”

The couple had been dating for three years, before taking their romance to the next level. Now, they’re husband and wife.

Congrats to the newlyweds!

Aurora’s Commitment2Community aims to help returning veterans build new bonds

Aurora’s Commitment2Community aims to help returning veterans build new bonds

Soldiers returning home from the battlefield can carry unseen scars, and Commitment2Community, a new Aurora-based nonprofit, is trying to help by forming a strong community of young veterans.

Heather Kuziel, 41, of Aurora founded the group in 2018 as a way to provide support and therapeutic recreation for veterans, their loved ones and those currently serving.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

Kuziel is not a veteran. She had dreamed of joining the Air Force, but couldn’t for medical reasons.

Though she grew up in the Aurora area, she spent most of her adult life in Florida where she worked as a recreational therapist in a group home. While there, she would organize activities between the foster kids and local veterans.

“Youth in the foster system can feel lost,” Kuziel said. “The kids felt they had a mentor and someone to look up to.”

She started Commitment2Community soon after she and her 9-year-old son moved back to the area.

The group’s main program is called #22vets, a reference to the number of military veterans who die by suicide per day, on average. The group organizes monthly therapeutic recreation events to help foster a sense of community among younger veterans.

During war, brotherhoods often form among troops. But once they return home, Kuziel said, they can lose that bond.

“So we help them form a new brotherhood here in the community,” Kuziel said.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

Last month, the group met at Barbell 4:13 Gym in North Aurora, which is owned by a veteran, Dave Keilman. At the event, veterans were treated to a free workout and pizza.

Another recent gathering was with Greg Zilioli, an Aurora resident who teaches woodworking skills to veterans through A Call to Shoulders. The program aims to teach veterans new skills that could even help them start their own businesses.

The next event will be at Beans Greens Proteins, an Aurora health food restaurant owned by Andrew Schoenwetter, a veteran and a member of the Commitment2Community board. The group will gather for free food, games and fun. The veterans will also box up donated items, including snacks and toiletries, to ship to soldiers serving overseas.

7 minors hurt in Chicago shootings, including 3 accidents

7 minors hurt in Chicago shootings, including 3 accidents

CHICAGO — Four separate shootings on Chicago’s West and South sides wounded at least seven children, including three cases that appear accidental, police said Saturday.

Three of the minors were wounded in a shooting at an apartment complex Friday night on the city’s South Side. Police said the shooting started during a ‘œgathering’� inside an apartment unit and spilled into the hall, according to a release issued early Saturday.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

Three adults also were wounded in the shooting at the Parkway Gardens housing complex.

Police said a 14-year-old girl, 18-year-old man and 23-year-old woman were listed in critical condition. The girl suffered wounds to her back, shoulder, lower backside and leg, while the woman suffered wounds to her back, shoulder, head and stomach. The man suffered multiple wounds to his leg.

A 20-year-old man who suffered wounds to his face, chest and leg was listed in serious condition.

Another 14-year-old girl, who suffered a gunshot wound to her leg, and a 15-year-old girl with gunshot wounds to her leg and foot were in good condition, police said.

The release said the circumstances leading to the shooting weren’t immediately known. Police said the 23-year-old woman was armed with a handgun, but didn’t say whether she fired the weapon.

Police described the other shootings that injured minors as accidental, based on their initial investigations.

The first of those reports came around 8 p.m. on Friday night. Police said a seven-year-old girl was holding a gun when it went off, hitting an 11-year-old boy in the neck. He was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

A few hours later, a young boy was playing with a gun when it fired and shot an eight-year-old boy in the shoulder and grazed a 12-year-old girl’s arm inside a home on the South Side. They were both taken in fair condition to a hospital.

Police said it wasn’t clear who the gun belonged to.

On Saturday afternoon, a 14-year-old girl was hit in the cheek when a 15-year-old boy fired a gun at a home on the city’s West Side.

The girl was taken to a hospital in fair condition and the boy was in police custody.

Police have not announced any arrests.
