Former Illinois Sen. Rod Blagojevich may be getting a new job in prison.

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich may be getting a new job title soon: prison librarian.

Blagojevich’s former defense attorney Sam Adam told CBS Chicago the former governor is “either in the library, or just about to get in the library.”

The job change comes a few months after Adam told the Chicago Sun-Times that Blagojevich was “totally bored” with his kitchen job cleaning pots and pans. 

Blagojevich is currently nine months into his 14-year prison sentence for corruption charges.
