Blago Shills at Chicago Comic Con

Disgraced former governor Rod Blagojevich may be out of money for his trial defense, but he apparently isn’t short of ideas. Charging $50 per autograph ($80 for a photo), he appeared at Chicago’s Comic Con amid Trekkies, Wookies, and superheroes. One fan with a tattoo of Blagojevich on his thigh sprang for both an autograph and a photo, prompting the governor to quip, “We need to get him on the next jury.’’ Blagojevich added: “It’s pretty fun to be out and be able to feel the warmth and the support from the people.’’ Blago was particularly excited to meet his childhood heroes Adam West and Burt Ward, who played Batman and Robin, on the 1960s television version of Batman.
