- Illinois General Assembly
- United States of America
On Tuesday December 9, 2008 Governor Rod Blagojevich was arrested and charged with blatant political corruption. He can no longer govern and, for the sake of the people of Illinois, needs to be removed from office as soon as possible.
The Illinois General Assembly is convening in a special session starting Monday December 15th, and must immediately impeach Governor Blagojevich and remove him from office, as provided for by the Illinois Constitution.
If impeachment is not completed in the next month then it can not be started until after a new General Assembly is convened on January 14th.
Please sign this petition and send a message to your legislators that they must act now to end Illinois' shameful political nightmare.
We, the undersigned, call on the Illinois General Assembly to move as quickly as possible to impeach Governor Rod Blagojevich and remove him from office pursuant to Article IV, Section 14 of the Illinois Constitution.
Governor Blagojevich's arrest for a "political corruption crime spree" has disgraced him, the office of Governor, and the State of Illinois.
Please end Illinois' political nightmare now.
