Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich is vowing to expose "the dark side of politics that he witnessed in both the state and national level" in a book due out later this year, his publicist announced Monday.
The publicist, Glenn Selig, said Blagojevich signed the "six-figure book deal" with Phoenix Books, run by "maverick publisher" Michael Viner. The Governor is the working title.
Hours before the press release about the Blagojevich book came out, one of Blagojevich's chief critics, state Rep. Jack Franks (D-Woodstock), announced a move to bar the impeached ex-governor from cashing in on the deal if he winds up being convicted of federal charges.
