"I have no interest in hearing about more corrupt politicians from a corrupt politician," one woman said of the indicted former governor's new tell-all book.

The timeline from impeachment to book release was an incredible seven months.

How did former Illinois chief executive Rod Blagojevich manage to bang out “The Governor” so quickly?

He wrote the first couple chapters longhand on a yellow legal pad, until his wife told him it was taking him too long, a source told the Sun-Times’ Michael Sneed.

“So he dictated the rest of the book on his 12-year-old daughter Amy's pink dictating machine," the source told Sneed.

Another reason for the quick turnaround: No one proofread it all that carefully.

Blago’s lawyers reportedly said they “didn’t go over the book with a fine-toothed comb before it was released.”
