Blagojevich Reportedly to Name Replacement to Fill Obama's Senate Seat


www.foxnews.com

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is reportedly planning to name a replacement to fill Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat Tuesday afternoon, even though his attorney said just two weeks ago that the governor would not exercise his appointment powers.

Blagojevich, who is facing impeachment proceedings after he was accused of trying to sell Obama's Senate seat, plans to name former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris to fill the vacancy, according to the Chicago Tribune and The Wall Street Journal.

U.S. Senate leaders have warned that they could hold up anybody appointed by Blagojevich. There are widespread concerns that such an appointment would be tainted, since Blagojevich is facing federal charges for his alleged attempts to extract favors and contributions from potential candidates.

Interesting turn of events here. I think he should choose a senator. He is innocent until proven guilty and these guys have had several years of junk on this guy and did not prosecute him. They better get a moving on nailing this guy otherwise this pick will go through and there is nothing they can do about it.
