Kicked out of public office? Suspected of killing your wife? Call Glenn Selig.
"I got into crisis management because I always want to be part of the big news story,” said Selig to Chicago Magazine.
And because he was fired from his investigative reporter job at a Miami Fox affiliate two years ago. There's that too.
Labeled a “sleazy PR guy” by the mustachioed Prince of Sleazery himself (Geraldo!), Selig's most recently used his charms and connections to get Blago's book, “The Governor,” promoted on every major channel across the country.
Selig was contacted by Peterson’s attorney, Joel Brodsky, at the end of 2007, and the publicist was able to get the ex-cop on Larry King Live.
Peterson will be back in the news on Oct. 2, when a Will County judge will rule on whether his trial should be held in Joliet.
Peterson is currently being held in custody on $20 million bail after pleading not guilty to charges that he killed his ex-wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004.
