And the cornered rat is still baring his defiant teeth. Hope they promptly try his miserable butt.
Not that he doesn't deserve it but it looks a lot like the congress has other motivations for this impeachment that are more political wrangelings than anything else.
The Illinois Senate impeached him, not the Congress.
oh well.....you got me. Congratulations:thumbs: !
Now that I got you, what will I do with you? Can you paint my house?
Actually it was the Ill House that impeached. The Senate will put him on trial.
So now you got me AND Mitch. We'll get our brushes and be right over.
It does? The Democrats have been in power for years in the General Assembly and Blago's own party had no problem voting for impeachment. Blago's spent his time as governor treating his own party leaders as the enemy, so I don't see why they would stick up for him. What am I missing?
There's more to it than just impeaching him. They also need to remove him from office. Bill Clinton was impeached, but they never removed him.
That is because the Senate voted not to impeach him. The Illinois Senate may very well vote to impeach him which would remove him from office.
Impeachment just involves a bringing of charges. The upper house (or Senate in case of the US Congress) votes on guilt or innocence.
The governor has been impeached - I assume the Illinois upper house now need to act on the indictment.
Impeachment = indictment. It does not decide guilt or innocence. The US constitution lays sole impeachment power in the House, not the Senate. Most states follow the same pattern.
Bigbossman is correct.
