Highest Office Held: Governor of Illinois

George Ryan's big move after politics was straight to prison. Ryan was involved in a number of investigations regarding bribes he took in exchange for allowing unqualified truck drivers to obtain trucking licenses.

He should be getting out later this year; we'll keep you posted on any forthcoming reality shows.
