It doesn't matter how his image has been damaged or that he has been charged with crimes.
As long as he is the Gov of Illinois, he has the authority to name a replacement for Obama.
If the Ilinois Dems want to short-stop Blago-Gate then good for them. I would if I were them but the Law doesn't make it so easy for them to do so.
Special Election -- Why not?
It would resolve all of this seedy shite, but it might result in a Repub Senator.
So the powers that be - DEMOCRATS - are not about take such a chance.
So they desperately try to send Blago t0 the rubble so that they can have a far more party attuned replacement step in.
It is filthy politics no matter what you are inclinded to embrace.
Know this - It is all personal fortune befoe the fortune of the nation.
Conservative are just a little bit better than Liberals
