End Citizens United Statement on President Trump Granting Clemency to Rod Blagojevich

Feb 18, 2020

End Citizens United (ECU) President Tiffany Muller released the following statement on President Trump’s decision to commute former Governor Rod Blagojevich’s prison sentence:

“President Trump’s decision to grant former Governor Rod Blagojevich clemency emboldens corrupt politicians across America who put personal gain ahead of the people they’re elected to serve. Blagojevich disgraced himself by abusing public office to try to get rich. Pay-to-play politics has no place in a democracy, and commuting his sentence is an insult to all Americans.”
