Rod Blagojevich (D) is opening up about his time in prison thus far over corruption convictions, revealing that his fellow inmates call him "Dawg," "govvie" or sometimes just "G."

Blagojevich, who is five years into a 14-year sentence incarcerated at FCI Englewood near Denver, said in an interview with NBC 5 Chicago that he gets along well with the other inmates, even recalling how they welcomed him to the prison with a sort of "care package."

"They call me 'Dawg' or 'govvie,' or sometimes they call me 'G,'" he said. "They gathered up a care package to give me some of the necessary things I'd need 'til I was able to go to the prison store and get stuff, like coffee, toothpaste, a toothbrush, they even had a yellow legal pad in there. It was really kind of touching."

Blagojevich was sentenced in 2011 for bribery and corruption after he was caught trying to sell an appointment to the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama when he was elected to the presidency in 2008.

He was infamously heard on a recorded phone conversation referring to the seat: "I've got this thing, and it's f---ing golden. I'm not just giving it up for f---ing nothing."

In his interview with NBC 5, his first since entering prison, Blagojevich maintained his innocence and said that he hopes to appeal the ruling again. So far, his sentence has been upheld twice on appeal.

"Do you realize, I have twice been given a longer prison sentence than Al Capone?" he said. "I've been given a prison sentence by the same judge who gave a mafia hit man ... he acknowledged under oath, a contract killer, my judge gave me a longer sentence than him."
