News today that the impeached governor from Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, has signed a book deal. A big book deal. Reportedly he’ll net 6 figures for signing on with publisher Phoenix Books. You’ll remember that while the state was busying to impeach Blagojevich the governor went on a media tour. He forcefully made his case that there was no hard evidence that he ever tried to sell the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama. He reached a whole lot of eyeballs from the morning news programs to the daytime platforms right through to the Late Night shows. Maybe this was an effort to make his case directly to the public? Maybe it was an attempt to drum up interest in a book? Back in February Blagojevich said he and his wife would not be filing for unemployment.
