CHICAGO (CBS) — Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich is not happy with his work assignment at the Colorado prison where he’s serving a 14-year term for corruption.

According to Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed, Blagojevich is “totally bored” because he’s still cleaning pots and pans in the prison kitchen.

His attorney, Sam Adam Jr., says Blagojevich would like to teach Shakespeare or ancient Greek philosophy or mythology.

Blagojevich was convicted on corruption charges last year. He began serving his term in March.
