    Disgraced former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich plans to write a book "exposing the dark side of politics," according to his publicist.

    Blagojevich, who was accused of trying to trade President Obama's former Senate seat for money and political favors, signed a six-figure book deal Monday, according to publicist Glenn Selig.

    The impeached former governor, who was ousted from office following his arrest on federal corruption charges, denies any wrongdoing and plans to detail how he chose Obama's successor in the Senate, his publicist said.

    Selig said Blagojevich's book will tell the truth about what happened and reveal information "that will at times be embarrassing to himself as well as to others."

    The book, which does not yet have a title, will be published by Phoenix Books and released in October, Selig said.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    could very well prove to be an interesting read . . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    It could shed some lights on the crooks in Chicago but I doubt that he will include any incriminating evidence against himself. Politicians can walk on water, always tell the truth and are never guilty of anything. Don't ya know. :mad: Just ask one of those suckers.

    You think he'd so easily betray his buddies in Chi town? This will amount to absolutely nothing...like an Obama speech.

    the same buddies that sold him out? The ones that have turned their backs on him? He's just shallow enough to actually blow the whistle on them!
