Coming next month: Golden: How Rod Blagojevich Talked Himself out of the Governor's Office and into Prison by Jeff Coen and John Chase.

The Chicago Tribune reports the book says "undercover recordings caught the former governor saying he had heard that convicted influence peddler Antoin 'Tony' Rezko secretly channeled $25,000 in cash to Barack Obama, but federal authorities did not deem the claim credible."

Among the other things secretly recorded by the FBI: "that Blagojevich mentioned naming Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry to Obama's vacant Senate seat so he could 'have a shot' at having sex with her."
