Disgraced former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has suffered a breakdown behind bars – and his famous mop top is now a dazzling snow white!
These extraordinary world exclusive photos – snapped by a jailhouse snitch and obtained by The National ENQUIRER – dramatically show how America’s most celebrated political inmate has gone loopy during his three years locked away at a Colorado correctional facility.
“He doesn’t really socialize and is very paranoid of everyone,” The ENQUIRER’s spy said.
Somber Blagojevich – federal inmate No. 40892-424 – whiles away his days bizarrely babbling about President Barack Obama and vowing that he will one day reclaim electoral glory!
“He’s constantly muttering to himself about Obama and blames the president for him being in prison and is sure he will be released within the year,” said the jailhouse source. “He plans to run for president as soon as he can!
“Rod has a very nice cell to himself, and the few inmates with whom he does talk believe he’s completely had a mental breakdown.”
It was just three years ago that Blagojevich, now 58, entered the Federal Correctional Institution, Englewood, a low-security facility outside Denver, to begin a 14-year hitch for trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat Obama vacated when he was elected president in 2008.
The former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant went into the big house with a famous head of floppy brown hair, but hard time has clearly been cruel to the coif. The jailbird is undoubtedly stressing out while awaiting word on a last-ditch appeal that he hopes will free him from a prison-issue ensemble of a T-shirt and track pants.
“He has a Texas gang looking out for him in here,” said the source, who snapped the topsecret photos and laid bare his day-by-day humiliation. “He also talked up his connections to the Chicago mob before he arrived.”
News of Blago’s breakdown should surprise no one – after all, his brother, Robert, confessed in a new book there was always something peculiar about his sibling. “My parents weren’t sophisticated enough to have maybe diagnosed something then, and [they] tolerated his behavior,” Robert said.
