This Just In

The Illinois House of Representatives has just voted to impeach Governor Blagojevich. Popcorn time!

Apparently, the vote was 114 - 1, with three members not voting.

Of course, I'm curious about the one who voted not to impeach . . .

I'm curious about the reasons that Patterson had for voting against the impeachment. When one does something that unpopular, one generally has an interesting reason for it.

I saw that too and I was really hoping you'd have some inside scoop about the person who voted against.

So next it goes to the state senate for a trail to dismiss him from office, right? Heard anything about the likelihood of that?

According to the Trib, Milt Patterson is a Republican from the Southwest Side of Chicago, who didn't feel that it was his job to impeach Rod Blagojevich. Milt, honey, Mercutio has something to tell you.

Blagojevich has been offered the chance to resign, which, in a move that will surprise no one, he is declining to do. Looks like it'll go to a Senate trial.
