The vote still has to go to the IL Senate for a vote. This can take 2-4 weeks. Depending on how many IL State Senators are in Blago's pocket, he may not end up getting thrown out.

Isn't it great how the Dems have been talking about how they will fight corruption since the 2006 election, yet they are now the poster children for corruption...

And where are the Republican's…? Nowhere! Not a word is heard from them.

It will be a while before trial proceedings begin in the Senate. The Republican Party in Illinois is in shambles and has been since the Ryan scandals. George and Jack. Right now its probably good strategy to express your horror and disgust at the Gov. then sit back and watch the show. The Dems are doing fine without any help. ;)

He is impeached - that is what having articles voted out in the House means. What he hasn't been, yet (and maybe never - remains to be seen), is convicted. A politician is impeached when the articles are voted out as adopted. He never is anything but impeached. But he may not be convicted, and thereby may retain his office.

Andrew Johnson was impeached in the House, tried in the Senate and not convicted. Richard Nixon barely dodged getting impeached (and would almost certainly have been convicted) by virtue of resigning before articles were voted out. William Jefferson Clinton was Impeached in the House, tried in the Senate, and not convicted.

We'll just have to see what the outcome in Illinois is. And of course, whatever the outcome in the Illinois legislature, there remains an indictment and trial to come in the Federal District Court...

All I will say it is about time and I hope the country gets a good look at how incredibly crooked Illinios politics really are. All politicians are dirty but they are right up there at the top ;)
