Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s last-minute pleas to the Illinois Senate fell on deaf ears. He argued that he had done nothing wrong and there was no criminal conviction and therefore how could he be removed from office. Further, he argued that the Illinois Senate’s rules denied him a chance to defend himself and disallowed him calling witnesses to mount a defense. The Senate voted 59 to 0 to remove him from office despite his pleas. Click here for more written and video coverage.
