Rod Blagojevich has manged to fight some of his corruption convictions, but if he wants to overturn any more, he'll have to go to the Supreme Court.
And that's the plan. After a federal court denied Blagojevich's appeal Wednesday, his wife Patti and his lawyer Leonard Goodman said they plan to take the case to the nation's highest court. (Video via CNN)
The former governor was sentenced to 14 years in prison in 2011 after he was convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat, among other charges. Ever since, he and his family have painted the whole trial as unfair. (Video via CBS)
