Just in from Reuters:

 Illinois senate votes to oust Governor Blagojevich

 … CHICAGO (Reuters) – The Illinois state senate on Thursday convicted Governor Rod Blagojevich of abuse of power, removing him from office amid charges that he tried to sell the U.S. Senate seat once held by President Barack Obama.

 More than two-thirds of the 59 senators, acting as a jury following the two-term Democrat’s impeachment on January 9, voted to find him guilty, effectively ousting him from office.

 The vote was televised live from the state capitol building in Springfield, Illinois. Blagojevich is the first governor in Illinois history to be impeached and removed from office.
