For real this time. While it's not exactly direct, he's not passing go and he's not collecting $200: Justice John Paul Stevens denied Ryan's request to remain out on bail while awaiting his appeal. Ryan, 73, is scheduled to go to prison on Wednesday.
The Supreme Court could still hear Ryan's appeal, but he'll have to wait behind bars for their decision. Also, they're totally not going to hear his case. But ...Illinois' Most Important Ryan is still wiiiiide open.
