FBI Affidavit Against Blagojevich
SPRINGFIELD, Ill.(AP)-- 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.
Impeached over allegations. Guilty until proven innocent. Here's a thought: Don't we have people actually serving in Congress who were actually convicted of crimes and ethics violations--not just accused?
I'm not saying Blago is or isn't all the things people say or think he is, but what a travesty of justice to be tried publicly in the media when allegations are not proven and lose your job.
And how fitting that Chicago politicians weren't corrupt 4, 6, 8, 12 months ago, but they sure are today--not that they are the only ones.
