Convicted former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich entered a federal prison in Colorado on Thursday to begin a 14-year sentence for corruption, the latest chapter in the downfall of a charismatic politician that seemed more like a bizarre reality TV show than a legal battle.
"I think it's kind of surreal to him, but he seems in good spirits," said Brian Pyle, who owns Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers in Littleton, where Blogojevich had lunch with three other people.
Mr. Pyle said he shook the former governor's hand as he left and told him, "Stay strong."
