Blagojevich now ex-governor

From MSNBC.com:

The Illinois Senate unanimously voted to remove Gov. Rod Blagojevich from office on Thursday after an FBI investigation revealed he tried to sell a U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder.

...

The governor's impeachment was triggered by his arrest last month on a variety of federal corruption charges. The criminal complaint against him included a long list of shocking quotes that portrayed Blagojevich as trying to auction off President Barack Obama's vacant U.S. Senate seat and pressure people for campaign donations.

...

Blagojevich...will immediately be removed from office and replaced by Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn, a fellow Democrat. No other Illinois governor has been impeached, let alone convicted in a Senate trial.


Nice to see something working in government....

Notice that Mr. Blagojevich got his law degree from Pepperdine University -- a fundamentalist Christian outfit, some of whose other graduates have been involved in the ongoing Dead Sea Scrolls scam. For details, see
