Ex-Illinois Governor George Ryan Faces Changed World After Prison
Ryan will encounter an Illinois where there appears to be less tolerance for corruption. It's also enacted reforms meant to thwart the kind of dealing Ryan engaged in. The state has also changed because of Ryan's legal actions as governor. Following the Republican's lead, Illinois abolished the death penalty in 2011. Ryan's personal life has changed as well. His wife and brother died while he was behind bars.
