Blagojevich Office Says Vote Was 'Not A Surprise'

Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich's office has blasted the impeachment proceedings as "flawed" and "biased."

The Democratic governor's office calls Thursday's unanimous House impeachment panel vote "not a surprise." It also predicts he'll be impeached by the full House, saying the outcome will be different "when the case moves to the Senate."

The House could vote on the panel's recommendation Friday and then send it to the Senate, where a trial would be held to decide if Blagojevich will be removed from office.

Blagojevich was arrested last month on federal corruption charges that included trying to sell off President-elect Barack Obama's vacant U.S. Senate seat.

Blagojevich's office says the governor has been denied due process during the impeachment proceedings.

    What's left to fight for Chris is possibly his freedom. He knows "where the bodies are buried" to use a phrase familiar to the gangster and gangsta politics of Chicago. He knows enough on obama, Emanual, Harris, Rezko and others to buy himself a nice short sentence at a spa or a walk altogether. He does not owe the false "messiah" anything. He should rat on them all, they would toss him to the wolves to save themselves, in fact, they are.

    Keep fighting Blags! Save yourself, rat them all out, from the fraud obama to the community organizers trying to work thier way up to where the Chicago hustler has. Toss those hoods under the bus, they would toss you.
