    Patti Blagojevich, the wife of imprisoned former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, wrote a Facebook post on Monday night describing the prison visiting room as “one of the saddest places on Earth.” Blagojevich wrote that she had visited her husband at the Littleton, Colo., Englewood facility over the weekend, and that her husband was “so happy to see the [sic] us,” presumably meaning herself and the couple’s two daughters. But, she wrote, “that visiting room has to be one of the saddest places on Earth. All those little kids visiting their dads. It breaks your heart.” Rod Blagojevich began his 14-year prison sentence in March, and his lawyers said he has been put on cleaning detail washing pots and pans.
