It's over for another corrupt DEMOCRAT, Rod Blagojevich.Illinois Senate Kicks Blagojevich Out of Office
Illinois senators stripped Gov. Rod Blagojevich of power Thursday in the final act of a political drama that handed the reins of state government to his estranged lieutenant governor, Pat Quinn, and likely will end Blagojevich's career in politics.Senators voted unanimously to convict Blagojevich and bar him from holding political office in the state again. Shortly after the vote, Quinn was sworn in as Illinois' new governor.The outcome was never in doubt. In fact, Quinn went to the state Capitol earlier in the day to prepare to be sworn in.Blagojevich said he was saddened and disappointed by the Senate's decision but not at all surprised."I predicted it," he told a pack of reporters outside his home Thursday evening. "The fix was in from the very beginning."Blagojevich vowed to keep fighting for ordinary citizens in the private sector and to clear his name."The fight goes on," he said. "Just because I'm not governor doesn't mean I won't keep fighting for the causes I've always fought for."Blagojevich is delusional."The fix was in from the very beginning."He has to be kidding.Of course, Blago did score a victory in that he was the one to select the person to fill Barack Obama's empty Senate seat, Roland Burris.But he gave it away. He didn't succeed in his plan to sell the seat.Oh, well. You win some, you lose some.Blago did accomplish something that even the great Barack Obama hasn't been able to do. Blago managed to really unite Democrats and Republicans, 59-0.
