Illinois Governor, Rod Blagojevich, who was endorsed by Barack Obama, has ties to many corruption figures in Chicago and Illinois and was repeatedly mentioned during the Rezko corruption trial may be removed from office. The Illinois Senate recently tried to pass legislation to allow the recall of the Governor. It failed by 3 votes. Here exerpts from an article in the Chicago Tribune:

“But lawmakers who pushed the measure said Blagojevich was the primary reason the state constitution needs a recall provision.

“State government is hemorrhaging with scandal and corruption,” said Sen. Dan Cronin (R-Elmhurst), the sponsor.”

“”We have a chance to do what we want to do, and that’s impeach the governor of Illinois,” Jacobs said. He called on Blagojevich to “do the right thing” and quit first.”

It appears that the people of Illinois are going to be heard, despite failure to pass the bill. There is a movement referred to as

Illinois Recall Initiative Petition

There is a blog devoted to this endeavor. Here is their mission statement:

 “Welcome to Recall Blagojevich Now! As we launch this website, our goal is simply to become your one-stop resource linking you to all of the news and views of the massive corruption, fiscal irresponsibility, and abuse of power occurring within certain leadership of Illinois’ government. Our goal is three-fold.

A) To link together the news concerning Illinois Politics and the abuse of power by our current governor. Including information on local representatives and senators and the issues that affect all Illinois residents.

B) TO HELP ILLINOIS CITIZENS TO HAVE A VOICE IN RECLAIMING ILLINOIS GOVERNMENT. Our ultimate goal is to gather enough grass-roots support to force our Illinois Senate and House to pass legislation to put a Recall Initiative on the November Ballot. We must act together and quickly to get this done. If enough of us work together, then they must act on our behalf.

C) TO FORCE OUR GOVERNOR TO CHANGE HIS WAYS OR TO LEAVE OFFICE. After we push through a recall initiative, if Blago does not change his positions, abuse of power, and fiscal irresponsibility, then we will lead a new charge to remove him from office.

More to come, and we hope to have informed posts and multiple links up within the next day. In the meantime we have set up our petition so be sure to sign the petition today.”
