Should He Be Impeached?

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is accused of trying to "sell" President-elect Barack

Obama's Senate seat for personal gain. He was arrested Tuesday and was back at

work not long after his arrest.

Now, other Illinois officials are pushing for his resignation. The Illinois Attorney General

says Blagojevich has shown "no inclination" to step down, and she's prepared to go to

court to have him removed from office.

A special session is planned for Monday to stop the Governor of his power to choose a

replacement for Obama.

We'd like to know what you think. Should Blagojevich be removed from office in light

of the charges against him? We'd like to share your comments on WITN News.

    To Ken from Ral.about impeachment. I'm sure that "mole" was just a "typo"but very interesting use of a the word mold but the afore mentioned politicians sure are working underground and behind our backs and in the backrooms against us common citizens. And all this time I thought "Hussain" Obama was doing an excellent job of screwing us.

    what do we expect all politicans lie. However, I think that more evidence should've been heard.

    C'mon Ken, lets be nice, Easley didn't rip off the state, he helped his wife rip off the state. But no worse than the bank execs using 1.6 billion of the bailout money for themselves. They should all pull time.

    Not yet. He has only been charged, not convicted. Until he's convicted he should be doing the job he was elected for - and watched very closely of course. A talented attorney general and prosecutors should get this to trial and conclusion quickly.
