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.
