Blagojevich is the former Illinois governor (2003-2009) who was arrested for trying to sell Barack Obama’s open Senate seat after Obama was elected President in 2008. On January 9, 2009, the Illinois House of Representatives voted 114-1 to impeach Blogojevich on charges of public corruption. The state’s Senate then voted unanimously to remove him from office. Blagojevich was then tried by the federal government and convicted on June 27, 2011 on charges of wire fraud, attempted extortion and conspiracy to solicit bribes. On December 7, 2011, Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years in prison, and on March 15, 2012, he reported to the federal correctional facility in Englewood, Colorado.

On February 18, 2020, Donald Trump commuted Blagojevich’s sentence to time served.

Tina Peters has been indicted on multiple felony charges related to election tampering, as well as contempt and misconduct charges.

Clark also reports that as of the last campaign period filing, Peters has “seriously out-raised” Pam Anderson, her closest competitor in the Republican primary. Unlike Peters, Anderson does not believe the 2020 election was stolen or rigged in any way, and does not believe massive voter fraud occurred. According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, Peters has raised three times more than Anderson, with a large majority of Peters’ money coming from out of state. Only 3.5% of Anderson’s donations have come from out of state.

  1. Blago has already shown that he’ll do anything for a buck. It’s what got him in trouble in the first place.

    And the strip club folks – gotta’ wonder what’s in it for them……

  2. This ‘fundraiser’ would be a great place to go and see the whackiest of whackos giving money to others of questionable intelligence and supporters of political miscreants.

  3. Knowing Blago’s history it would be interesting to find out if his appearance at Peters’ fundraiser pays him a flat rate or is it a percentage deal. Based on his past history you know he’s not doing it for free.

  4. Ladies, hope you have a man already – rod’s all that’s left at “Last Call”.
