“There’s no sugar-coating this. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. And I have a hole in my heart. It’s an empty feeling,” says Blagojevich.

Following two trials, Blagojevich was convicted of 18 counts of corruption, including trying to sell President Barack Obama’s vacant U.S. Senate seat in 2008, CBS reported.
