SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - The Illinois House voted overwhelmingly Friday to impeach Gov. Rod Blagojevich, setting up an unprecedented trial in the state Senate on whether he should be thrown out for abuse of power, including allegations that he tried to sell President-elect Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat.

He got caught red handed.
I'm glad they through the bum out.
Now, if we could only catch the rest of the politicians who are using their office for personal gain I'd have a better opinion of our country.

They guy might be a scumbag and he might even be guilty. But the fact is a man was just impeached even though this man has not been indicted on any criminal charges and the government keeps delaying the indictment. Why is this? If they have a good case why not go with it? There are things that just smell bad about this. We are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty and allowed due process. This goes for all and that even includes loud mouth governors.
