The Chicago Sun-Times reports today that former Governor George Ryan is writing a “tell-all” book.
Dan Walker, who also served time in Federal prison, although not for any crime committed while Governor, wrote a book that I enjoyed a lot.
With the help of a co-author, every other chapter talked about his public and his prison service.
They played off against each other quite well.
Columnist Michael Sneed has the pipeline to Ryan and wrote this about the project.
“I think it’s safe to say a few former top state leaders might be a little worried,” son Homer told her.
While his son says that the book will be a “no holds barred” book, I’m betting there will be little embarrassing about former Governor Jim Thompson, whose law firm represented Ryan in his criminal trial and who ran interference for him with the media.
