(Newser) – A Nevada brothel featured on an HBO reality show is offering Rod Blagojevich the chance to recoup some of the cash he missed out on by being barred from leaving the country to film for NBC, Gawker reports. The former Illinois governor’s PR flak is taking “very seriously” the offer from the Moonlite Bunny Ranch of an “apprenticeship.”

“Rod’s willpower would be challenged daily by the ladies as they bribe him to acquire finer rooms or better working hours and days off,” reads a press release, hinting that the exploits would appear on the HBO show Cathouse. “In lieu of Rod’s work throughout the apprenticeship, (owner) Dennis Hof will pay him a handsome amount of money.”
