How much did he pay for the seat?

Rod Blagojevich sentenced to 14 years over attempted sale of Obama's senate seat - Telegraph

In a tearful plea for mercy before a Chicago court, Blagojevich said he had made "terrible mistakes" but insisted he did not know he was breaking the law when he sought $1.5m in bribes.
...The twice-elected Democrat, who came to power on a promise to sweep corruption from his state's politics, is the second consecutive Illinois governor to be sentenced to prison and the fourth to be jailed in the last 40 years.

Thank goodness that nice Mr Obama was unsullied by the sleaze of Chigago politics as he made his saintly ascension.

"...the second consecutive Illinois governor to be sentenced to prison and the fourth to be jailed..."

Huh?

What happened to the other two then, were they jailed without being sentenced?

American justice must be even worse than I thought.
