The Governor has just been impeached.

They've just voted, and 114 to 1 the Illinois House has just voted to impeach Governor Blagojevich.  That's it.  He's impeached.  It's the first time an Illinois governor has ever been impeached.  In a few weeks the Illinois Senate will have a trial (unless Blagojevich resigns).

Most of the lawmakers who spoke this morning before the vote blathered on and on.  A few had some reasonable and good comments, but it took them almost 90 minutes to accomplish what should have taken 30 minutes.  It's clear that some of these legislators love to hear the sound of their own voices.
