FILE – In this Dec. 7, 2011 file photo, former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, left, speaks to reporters as his wife, Patti, listens at the federal building in Chicago. A daughter of Blagojevich is criticizing former President Barack Obama for not granting early release to her father, who’s serving prison time for corruption. In an emotional letter, 20-year-old Amy Blagojevich called Obama “spineless” for not commuting her father’s sentence. Blagojevich’s wife, Patti, posted the letter on her Facebook page. (AP Photo/M.
