A former fundraiser for ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has been sentenced in federal court to two years in prison.

58 year old Raghuveer Nayak had previously pleaded guilty to federal health-care fraud charges and faced up to 23 years in prison.

Prosecutors have alleged but never charged Nayak with offering to raise $1 million for Blagojevich's campaign if the then-governor named Jackson to President Barack Obama's old Senate seat.
