Publicist: Ousted Illinois governor to write book
The impeached former offical has signed a six-figure deal for his story
March. 2, 2009

A publicist for Rod Blagojevich says the former Illinois governor plans to write a book "exposing the dark side of politics."

Glenn Selig says Blagojevich signed a six-figure deal Monday.

Selig says the book also will detail how Blagojevich selected President Barack Obama's successor in the U.S. Senate.

Blagojevich was impeached and removed from office following his arrest on federal charges that include allegations included he tried to sell the Senate seat. He denies wrongdoing.

Selig says Blagojevich's book will tell the truth and will reveal information "that will at times be embarrassing to himself as well as to others."

Selig says Blagojevich's book will be published by Phoenix Books and released in October.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

On the one hand it would be an interesting read [if he allows a real editor to guide the book] as it is an important chapter in history and some insight, no matter how self-serving will be interesting to read.

On the other hand, I foresee an attempt at rationalizing the past three years bad behavior.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

It would be a great insight into the murky world of local politics, certainly more interesting than the usual puff books about the meaning of life written by your standard politicians.
