(CNN) - Moments after removing him from office, the Illinois senate voted unanimously to prevent impeached Gov. Rod Blagojevich from ever holding political office in the state again.
it may not stand up in the courts....
A WARNING TO ALL POLITICIANS, CLEAN UP YOUR ACT OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES.
At least, the State Senate have told (Former) Governor Blagojevich will not be able to work in the State Government of Illinois....
I SAID IT. NEVER TRUST A SERBIAN.
How much will he get in pensions ???
It's going to interesting to hear who gives him a job now or which state he moves to so he can get back into politics.
The courts have no say. Removal after impeachment cannot be appealed to the courts.
How about Palin?
Why is this not working?
IT IS ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!! WHAT TOOK SO LONG?
No severance package please. Just let him pack his pictures and his plants and go home.
Yer' a moron. It doesn't HAVE to stand up in court. He's out. End of story.
ok....Well, he was proven guilty by those who accused him, he was never given the ability to prove himself innocent. How UnAmerican!!!
we will take him in NJ, I can't stand Corzine.
One Obama buddy down.
is there any appeal process for Rod?
Guess, they will be real happy with this NEW Senate picked Governor. He will do exactly as the Gov. Officials want. I wouldn’t trust him… Let’s see what happens now.
I guess he SHOULD have appointd himself as Obama's Senate replacement. So he's an idiot on top of being a crook.
BLAGO AND HIS WIFE SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN ANY JOB IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR OF ILLINOIS.
The Illinois house voted 114 -1 to impeach Blago and the Senate 59-0. Was there a conspiracy in the legislature to impeach the guy?... With these numbers, I think not! Peace out Blago, don't get your hair in a ruffle
This scares me... What Blagojevich has been accused of is pretty slimy but lets be clear, they are accusations and nothing more. The Illinois State legislature got all of this like 5 minutes ago and now has become judge and jury in a snap. The idea that they ran him out of town is to me a clear violation of the constitution. What they did can now be seen by other states as..."we don't like the gov. so lets impeach him".... This is a Democracy not a dictatorship that runs kangaroo courts....
He'll be back...
in Celebrity Boxing.
Mud in your face, when he goes to Court and if no one lies under oath, and all his wittness's come in, and he's proven innocent!
Good. It's about time. Now put this joker in jail.
LOOKS LIKE BLAGO GOT MORE THAN WHAT HE BARGAINED FOR BY OUTSMARTING HIMSELF. HE'LL PROBABLY TAKE HIS HORSE AND BUGGY SHOW TO ANOTHER STATE, BETTER YET HOW ABOUT TAKING IT TO ANOTHER COUNTRY.
So he's only barred from Illinois politcs.........he could still become president of the U.S.
