Former Illinois Governor and current convicted felon Rod Blagojevich found his perfect venue yesterday, because there’s no more appropriate place for somebody who’s part comic, part con, than Comic Con.
From the Chicago Sun Times:
The ex-governor repeatedly smiled and posed with admirer after admirer at the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont.
Despite the presence of some 500 actors, artists, writers, pro wrestlers and models, Blagojevich was touted atop the show’s website and enjoyed prime real estate on the convention floor with a booth near the entrance. While Blago got no appearance fee, he kept proceeds from autographs ($50 each) and photos ($80 a pop).
Jeremy Scheuch, who had an image of the former governor tattooed on his thigh, was one of an undisclosed number of fans who shelled out cash for the newly convicted Blagojevich’s signature and photo.
“We need to get him on the next jury,’’ Blagojevich said of Scheuch, a 31-year-old event planner from Humboldt Park.
Scheuch’s girlfriend, Maya Sinstress, had “G-Rod’’ sign a copy of the book, Pay to Play: How Rod Blagojevich Turned Political Corruption Into a National Sideshow, that she said she’d swiped from the Chicago Public Library.
“He f—– up, but you still kind of root for the guy,’’ Scheuch said.
Said Blago: “It’s pretty fun to be out and be able to feel the warmth and the support from the people.’’

The event ended on a sour note after Comic Con security arrested Blagojevich for trying to sell Commissioner Gordon’s seat in return for an autographed photo of Lindsay Wagner and a bag of Funyuns.
