Patti Blagojevich visited ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich in a Colorado prison, calling it “one of the saddest places on earth.”

“We spent the weekend in Denver visiting Rod,” Patti Blagojevich posted on her Facebook page. “He was so happy to see . . . us and we were so happy to see him. That visiting room has to be one of the saddest places on earth though. All those little kids visiting their dads. It breaks your heart.”

Her husband is serving a 14-year sentence at FCI Englewood Prison in Littleton, Colo.

Recently, his former lawyers, Sam Adam and Sam Adam Jr., visited him and reported that he looked tan and had put on at least 5 pounds from working out.

Patti Blagojevich’s Facebook posting got more than 300 “likes” and more than 100 comments.

Said one well-wisher: Ultimately “it doesn’t matter where you all got together, you were together. That is what matters!”
