(Newser) – Looking to book Rod Blagojevich for a speaking gig, but just weren’t sure how to get a hold of him? Now you can reach him with the click of a mouse, thanks to his new website, which the ousted governor named—of course—, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. “Rod Blagojevich needed his own website,” his publicist says. “It was time.”

According to the press release, the site gives “those who can’t get enough of” the former guv “their fill 24/7.” You can, for example, preview his “highly anticipated” book, The Governor, or connect to his radio show. And why wouldn’t you want to? After all, Blago “has continued to dominate local and national coverage,” quoth the release, most recently with an surprise Elvis impersonation at a Chicago block party.
