Because one Blago book isn't enough, the brother of Rod Blagojevich is writing his own book about his battle with the feds. In 2009, the former Illinois pol wrote his version, called "The Governor," on filling the Senate seat vacated by President Obama. Now his brother, Robert, is penning a memoir about his three-year ordeal: "How I Survived the Federal Justice System." The brothers were initially tried together; prosecutors dropped all charges against Rob and re-tried his brother Rod. More from the Washington Post's Reliable Source.
