Illinois GOP calls for Blagojevich resignation

From the Illinois Republican party:

“For the good of the state, and in the interest of the taxpayers, the Illinois Republican Party calls on Governor Blagojevich to resign his office effective immediately.

“If Governor Blagojevich does not resign his position, we urge the General Assembly to move swiftly with impeachment proceedings.

“Furthermore, Governor Blagojevich should not, under this cloud of extremely serious allegations, appoint a United States Senator.

“While there is a presumption of innocence, in these troubling economic times, the people’s work should be placed ahead of Governor Blagojevich’s legal troubles.”
