1:30 Update:::
Huffpo:::
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — The Illinois House voted overwhelmingly Friday to impeach Gov. Rod Blagojevich, an unprecedented action that sets up a Senate trial 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.

Impeachment required just 60 votes. The final result was 114-1.

Legislators accused the second-term Democratic governor of letting down the people of Illinois by letting ego and ambition drive his decisions.

"It's our duty to clean up the mess and stop the freak show that's become Illinois government," said Rep. Jack D. Franks, a Democrat.

Blagojevich was out jogging in his Chicago neighborhood when the vote came down.

Is it just me but does he remind anyone of that old PI show Baretta ???? ( AND WHY is he always seen running around in that stupid 80's jogging suit ???)

( Anyone know WHO the ONE person is that voted against Impeachment ????)

Annette said...

Rep. Milton Patterson, D from Chicago voted against. Elga Jefferies D voted present. Another was not there and one other is deceased. That's the 118.

And yes, I have thought he and Sarah were quite a bit alike and they had a lot of the same actions. I think he is smarter than she is though...lol She is such a whiner...have you seen the new interview, well partial of her with Ziegler?? She is gearing up for 2012...look out world here she comes again...

Opppps NOT a Q&A this time....out he scuttles after reading Tennyson.....damn..
where is my popcorn...

Annette said...

He is something...and yes so is she. I am not sure what he was talking about...but then I don't think anyone else does either..lol
I don't think there are that many people getting foreclosed on anymore I know in Cook County, (Chicago) the Sheriff had refused to do anymore foreclosures because he was finding he was kicking out renters more than homeowners. That would be the largest area where they would be done. That's been quite a while back he did that.

I too had trouble writing about the terrible thing in Gaza...that's why I just posted the stories...I just couldn't get any real words out. But I thought the story needed to be there. The tears were flowing, and I couldn't put words together. But it had to be in more than one place and there are too many saying it isn't happening.

about Blago....omg...he is like something out of a cartoon ??? a bad Nick Movie??? so weird...and yeah, I thought Cook County is one of the counties that had suspended evicting people ( they have stopped here too).

about Gaza...I made the mistake of collecting photos from different papers abroad....and I have about 100, or more....they too have made me cry...so many of children standing in rubble....and mothers crying...and yes, I found photos of the schools....so I do understand...

Hang in there - we need to get through this wretched time..
