That wasn't too hard, was it?
Just like I begged them to last week, the Illinois legislature is forming an impeachment committee that will decide whether or not Gov. Rod Blagojevich will be forcibly removed from office.
Blago's impeachment or resignation, coupled with the standard senatorial appointment by Pat Quinn, his would-be replacement, is the only thing that makes sense for Illinois. The state has no money to pay for a costly special election, and Blago cannot simply be stripped of his appointment power but allowed to stay in office. So this is an encouraging development.
Illinois, though... yikes!
