Governor Blagojevich Likely to Face Impeachment

Hosted by

The Illinois legislature will convene tomorrow to deal with Governor Rod Blagojevich, who faces criminal charges for putting Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat up for sale. The President-elect, Senator Durbin and the state constitutional officers all have called for his resignation. In Springfield today, House Speaker Michael Madigan said that, since the Governor had "declined," I think it is time we move forward with a committee of inquiry that could lead to impeachment." Chris Fusco covers state government for the Chicago Sun-Times.
