A day after the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission asked the Illinois Supreme Court to suspend the convicted politician's law license, the estate of Elvis Presley announced that Blagojevich has been banned for life from Graceland, the Memphis mansion that has been maintained as a shrine to Elvis since the singer's death in 1977.
"Due to the egregious breadth of Blagojevich's conduct while governor of Illinois, he is no longer welcome on any Presley family properties," Elvis's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, said in a statement. "He is also prohibited from singing 'Treat Me Nice' in public, or impersonating Elvis in any way."
Satire: Ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich banned from Graceland
NBC Chicago has some fun with disgraced former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich with a satirical bit called "Blagojevich Banned from Graceland." Recall that Blagojevich, a big Elvis fan, was even doing some EP tribute work to pay the bills a couple of years back. He happens to be back in the news after Illinois' attorney-disciplining body asked the state Supreme Court to revoke his law license.
