Blagojevich fired from `Celebrity Apprentice'

Blagojevich fired from `Celebrity Apprentice'

Rod Blagojevich has been fired again. The former Illinois governor, whom state lawmakers ousted from office last year, has been kicked off the reality television show "Celebrity Apprentice."
"Apprentice" boss Donald Trump fired him after Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) struggled as team leader in creating an interactive display.
As on a previous episode, technology posed a surprising hurdle for Blagojevich. On Sunday's show, he had trouble sending text messages and e-mail.
Blagojevich explained his difficulties using cell phones and computers on Chicago's WLS-AM radio Monday. The 53-year-old says his generation didn't grow up with "all that stuff."
Blagojevich faces a federal indictment alleging corruption. Prosecutors say he schemed to sell or trade President Barack Obama's former Senate seat. Blagojevich has denied any wrongdoing.
