    Ill. House impeaches governor

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich was impeached Friday by Illinois lawmakers furious that he turned state government into a "freak show," setting the stage for an unprecedented trial in the state Senate that could get him thrown out of office. The 114-1 vote in the Illinois House came exactly a month after Blagojevich's arrest on charges that included trying to sell President-elect Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat. The debate took less than 90 minutes, and not a single legislator rose in defense of the governor, who was jogging in the snow in Chicago.

    The Vote for impeachment does not count because the Illinois Senate will not act before the end of the Illinois Legislative term, in a few days.

    The impeachmetn vote will not count for the new term. Another vote is required.

    This impeachment vote was just puffing. No effect.

    I wonder if he has a toupee that someone can rip off his head as happened recently to a local scumbag lawmaker named Chiu Yi a few weeks back. THAT was funny.
