Blagojevich Is Impeached

Hosted by

Rod Blagojevich is accused of trying to sell the appointment to Barack Obama's US Senate seat, but he hasn't been formally charged, let alone convicted.  Nonetheless, the state's House of Representatives impeached him today by a vote of 114 to one. The Illinois Governor says he won't step down, and that means he's likely to be tried by the State Senate.  John Chase reports for the Chicago Tribune.
