Recently convicted (on one count) former Governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich is heading to Wizard World this weekend in Chicago.  Before his recent court appearances the disgraced former Governor was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice.

Blagojevich will appear at a photo session at 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and then sign autographs from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

“I’m looking forward to meeting loyal supporters and other fans on Saturday,” said Blagojevich, whose many recent television appearances included a stint on “Celebrity Apprentice.”

“Wizard World Chicago Comic Con is all about pop culture, and Rod Blagojevich is as relevant to today’s news as it gets,” said Gareb Shamus, CEO of Wizard Entertainment. “We think the court of public opinion will show him to be a popular figure at the show.”
