Well, now Blago will be able to pay some of his legal bills... Do you think people are going to buy the book? I guess they will or the publisher wouldn't be handing out that kind of money. Given Blagojevich hasn't been convicted of the crimes, I can't quite put him in this category, BUT I sure wish that when some crook or sleezeball wrote a book the public would ignore it. I hate the idea that the slime in our society are able to sometimes rake in huge dollars by writing a book. Ah well, asking too much.
One this I hope this book DOES do is connect the dots between Blago, Rahm Emmanuel and the White House. Wouldn't that be a kicker? Although, if it does, and does it well, expect to start hearing rumblings about the "Fairness" Doctrine being extended to print media.
Blago Gets Six Figure Book Deal

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich signs a six figure book deal with an independent publisher.
From PR NewsChannel
Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich today signed a six figure book deal with one of the largest independent book publishers in the U.S., the PR firm representing Blagojevich announced today.
Blagojevich, who vehemently denies he tried to sell President Obama's senate seat, will write about the discussions, the considerations and the factors involved in picking Obama's successor to the U.S. Senate. Blagojevich maintains he was hijacked from office because of politics. In the book, he will write about his journey that led up to the twice-elected governor and former congressman being ousted from office. He also plans on exposing the dark side of politics that he witnessed in both the state and national level.
