SCHAKOWSKY CALLS ON GOVERNOR BLAGOJEVICH TO RESIGN
Washington, D.C.--U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) released the following statement in response to news that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was arrested and indicted today for abusing his office for financial and personal gain.
"This is a sad day for the people of Illinois. The charges against Governor Blagojevich are very serious and damaging. It is in the best interest of the State of Illinois that Governor Blagojevich resign from office immediately. If he does not resign, the state legislature should reconvene for a special session immediately and begin impeachment proceedings against Governor Blagojevich. I have already called the Illinois Speaker of the House, Michael Madigan, and Illinois State Senate President, Emil Jones, to ask them to come back into session to begin impeachment proceedings."
