Disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich has a six-figure book deal, his publicist said Monday.

Now this guy has a platform for a book.

Dt,
A platform can be created by doing something great, stupid or illegal. Makes it tough for law abiding citizens to compete with this type of notoriety.

Interesting article, Marie. Sounds like he had shady dealings in the past. I wonder if the rep will follow him in his new venture? But most folks don't pay attention to the publisher.

I'm trying to figure out a way to cut a six figure deal without having to boff the President.

As bad as that is, I don't think it can compare with OJ's If I Did It.
