Illinois House Impeaches Gov. Rod Blagojevich

News Flash: Crooked Chicago Politician Gets Caught

According to the Washington Post, the second shoe has finally dropped.
The [Illinois] House voted 114 to 1 to impeach Blagojevich a day after a special committee unanimously recommended impeachment following hearings on a variety of allegations, including federal corruption charges that led to his arrest last month. Among other alleged offenses, Blagojevich was accused in an FBI affidavit of conspiring to sell President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder.
I want to know who voted against it, but I doubt it was this guy:
A fellow Democrat on the committee said the governor's refusal to resign has made Illinois "the laughingstock of the country."
Which sure takes the heat off of Sarah Palin and her brood.
