Earlier today Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was impeached by the peoples representatives in the House. Can’t say I’m surprised by this though I haven’t been following this particular story terribly closely. Corruption has been a part of government since governments first came into existence and it will probably remain a part of government long after Blagojevich is forgotten. Still, its nice to see politicians making at least a token attempt to address it. Whether the Governor is guilty or not I do not know, but we’ll find out soon enough.
