CBS News is reporting that Rod Blagojevich has officially been removed from office by the Illinois General Assembly. He's also been barred from ever holding office again. His impeachment trial was held with Blajojevich in abstentia and presenting no defense.
Instead, "Blago" the talk show circuit to proclaim his innocence, which is an interesting response. On one hand, this is the method by which he was first accused. On the other, it's probably poor strategy. It doesn't make him look any less guilty. Personally, I think he should have stood before the Illinois General Assembly and argued the validity of the hearings.
I know I'm tired of hearing about it. At the same time, I'm worried about what I'm not hearing: words like habeas corpus and due process.
It may be over, but it ain't over.
