Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) has been fired again.

The former governor, whom Illinois lawmakers ousted from office last year, has been kicked off NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice."

"Apprentice" boss Donald Trump fired the ex-governor on Sunday's episode after Blagojevich 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-mailing.

Blagojevich's team members complained that he didn't give them clear instructions.

He was thrown out of office in January 2009 and faces a federal indictment alleging political corruption while in office. Blagojevich has denied any wrongdoing.
