Blagojevich book Blames Madigan, Durbin, Lobbyists, Lawmakers, etc, for His Problems

from the Capitol Hill newspaper, THE HILL

In his new book, The Governor, Blagojevich discusses his ties to President Barack Obama’s administration — although he spells one of the president’s senior adviser’s names wrong — and describes the behind-the-scenes battles that led him to appoint Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.) to Obama’s Senate seat.
