Illinois House Does Nothing to Prevent Blagojevich from Appointing A Senator.

After today our governor could still appoint a US Senator since the state house did nothing to stop or change that.

Yes kids the big call early last week from a host of people including Richard Durbin for a special election went for naught as the legislature failed to act on any change to the filling of a US Senate vacancy.  Ironically this was the reason the legislature was called into session, not to start an impeachment proceeding.

""No appointment by this governor under these circumstances could produce a credible replacement," Durbin said.

Guess what, the Illinois state house and senate decided to take a pass on their moment of courage and instead decided not to give what 66% of the folks in Illinois want
and instead decided to avoid the risk of giving the people of Illinois a choice.
