Looks like Blago is out of a job.
From the Associated Press:
Rod Blagojevich is no longer Illinois' governor. Blagojevich was ousted from office Thursday by the Illinois Senate. His removal capped a state crisis that began with his Dec. 9 arrest on corruption charges -- including that he tried to sell President Barack Obama's vacant U.S. Senate seat.
The 52-year-old Democrat gave a passionate closing statement, claiming he did nothing wrong. It didn't sway senators, who voted 59-0 to remove him for abuse of power.
Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn immediately becomes governor.
Don't let the door hit you, etc.
