Rod Blagojevich, the first U.S. governor in more than 20 years to be removed from office by impeachment, signed a deal Monday to write a book "exposing the dark side of politics," his publicist said.Well, this could be interesting. I'm sure there's a lot to expose.
Blagojevich signed a "six-figure" deal to write a book for Phoenix Books, to be released in October, publicist Glenn Selig said in a news release.
Blagojevich, ousted after his arrest by federal authorities on corruption charges that include allegations he tried to sell President Barack Obama's vacant U.S. Senate seat, plans to explain how he selected Obama's successor. Blagojevich denies any wrongdoing.
"He also plans on exposing the dark side of politics that he witnessed in both the state and national level," according to Selig's release.
