STATEMENT REGARDING THE CONVICTION OF ROD BLAGOJEVICH
With the Senate's vote today, the destructive tenure of Rod Blagojevich has ended. We can now move forward with the work of the People of the State of Illinois.
I respect the diligent and thoughtful work of the House and Senate throughout this impeachment process and thank the members of the Illinois General Assembly for their commitment to upholding the State's Constitution and laws. The People of Illinois should feel confident that they were well served over these past weeks.
I am committed to working with Governor Quinn to move our state beyond this sad chapter. I pledge the full resources of my office to assist Governor Quinn and to work to restore the trust of the People of Illinois in their government.
