Rod Blagojevich's Book Publisher folds

Not everything ex-governor Rod Blagojevich touches turns bleepin' golden.

The publisher of his tell-all book "The Governor" closed last week.

Clients of Los Angeles-based Phoenix Books said they were informed by e-mail just days before the company closed.

The governor was sorry to hear about Phoenix closing and the jobs that will be lost because of it. The ripple effect will no doubt impact him in some way as it will many other authors. The governor will always be grateful to Phoenix and to its late publisher Michael Vinor for believing in him and for giving him a platform to share the truth.”

— Glenn Selig, Spokesman for Rod Blagojevich
