Illinois Governor update

The latest on the Illinois Governor case is that the Illinois House of Representatives has voted to begin an impeachment inquiry into Governor Rod Blagojevich, who is accused of trying to sell the US Senate seat vacated by president-elect Barack Obama.
The inquiry, approved 113-0, will be placed in the hands of a special committee.
If it determines that impeachment is warranted, the House would vote on whether to impeach, to be followed by a trial in the state senate.
If convicted at trial the governor could be forced from office.
It seems that no one wants to be seen to ‘like’ this bloke any more!!
