About this item

Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich made international headlines when he was arrested by the FBI, accused of running the state government as a criminal racket and, most shockingly, of trying to sell Barack Obama’s vacated US Senate seat. Golden is the definitive account of the Blagojevich story, written by two Chicago reporters who covered every step of his rise and fall and spent years sifting through evidence, compiling documents, and conducting over a hundred interviews with those who have known Blagojevich from his childhood to his time in the governor’s office. The authors present the facts about one of the nation’s most notorious politicians, detailing the mechanics of the corruption that brought him down and profiling a fascinating and frustrating character who embodies much of what is wrong with modern politics.
