The way fed prosecutors see it, ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich can’t endlessly blab and blab on TV and then worry about being hurt by pretrial publicity.

On Tuesday, the prosecutors asked that a key document detailing evidence in their public corruption case be made public in its entirety, the Chicago Tribune reported. Blagojevich has claimed he would be hurt by the pretrial publicity.

Prosecutors say he hasn’t been publicity shy.

“Notwithstanding the recent airing of a national television show in which he repeatedly proclaimed his innocence, Rod Blagojevich now argues that he would be unfairly prejudiced by the publication of the actual evidence that will be heard at his trial,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Niewoehner wrote in a reference to Blagojevich’s recent appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice”, the Tribune reported.

Blago has also been a fixture on talk shows and news programs. He was charged in December 2008 with a number of allegations including selling the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Obama.

And by the way, in case you didn’t follow it, he was fired form the “Celebrity Apprentice.”
