SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois attorney general has filed a motion with the state's highest court asking justices to remove scandal-plagued Gov. Rod Blagojevich from office.
Lisa Madigan took the action Friday as pressure on the governor intensified to step down. The motion challenges his fitness to serve and asks that the Supreme Court oust him.
The legal game is on. For those not familiar with Ill. politics, AG Lisa Madigan is the daughter of Michael Madigan, who is the Speaker of the House in the Illinois General Assembly.
