Blagojevich to appear on Letterman show

Chicago – Less than a week after he was ousted from the Illinois governor's office, Rod Blagojevich will appear on the Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday night.

It will be the former governor's first late-night interview since he was removed from office by a unanimous vote of the Illinois Senate on Thursday.

Blagojevich faces federal corruption charges that include trying to auction off Barack Obama's old U.S. Senate seat. Federal prosecutors are expected to indict him by April.
