The Illinois state senate has found Rod Blagojevich guilty in their impeachment trial of the corrupt governor by a vote of 59-0.
The former governor had refused to take part in the trial, but he surprised everyone by asking to make a closing statement in which he insisted that he should not be tossed out of office on what he called incomplete evidence.
“You haven’t proved a crime, and you can’t because it didn’t happen,” Blagojevich pleaded with state senators. “How can you throw a governor out of office with insufficient and incomplete evidence?”
Lt. governor Pat Quinn will take over as governor of the state of Illinois. He will be immediatly sworn in to office. Blago will now have time to watch his Cubs lose, lose, lose, and lose yet again this year.
