Gov says former Gov Ryan must 'do the time'
CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says former imprisoned Gov. George Ryan should serve out the rest of his sentence.
On Monday a federal court denied an appeal filed by Ryan. The 78-year-old is nearing the end of a 6 1/2 -year sentence. He's due to be released next year.
Among other things, Ryan was convicted in 2006 of steering state contracts and leases to political insiders while secretary of state and then as governor, receiving vacations and gifts in return.
