IL House Begins Impeachment Proceedings

The vote to impeach Gov. Blagojevich was unanimous. The only point of contention was over the ability of the Governor to appoint a new US Senator to fill President-Elect Obama's vacant seat. Republicans want a special election, but there was no vote on it, possibly because the state is already cash-strapped & may not afford another election.

The first step has begun in Illinois ridding itself of Blago, and just about everyone wants him gone.
