Three items for you:

* John Ruberry tracks the latest Blago-gate revelations concerning a Burris-Blago brother wiretap first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times. More from WaPo and NYTimes.

* The Associated Press reports that Rahm-bo and Blago traded phone calls over a $2 million state school grant. No word on the F-bomb count.

Birds of a feather…

Oh, and in case you missed it, Mrs. Patty F’n Blago is going to be a reality TV star. Just a hard-working Everywoman trying to make an f’n living:

NBC couldn’t get scandal-scared Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to be on “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here,” so it’s settling for second best – his wife Patti.

Patti Blagojevich, who has been labeled as her husband’s foul-mouthed sidekick, said she was in it for the money.

“I don’t feel I’m a celebrity. NBC wanted my husband on the show, and when he was unable to go, they expressed interest in me,” she said Thursday on NBC’s “Today” show. “In this terrible economic time, I feel it’s necessary to go to work to support my family.”
