STATE REPRESENTATIVE RON STEPHENS REACTS TO GOVERNOR'S IMPEACHMENT
We had a chance to talk to State Representative Ron Stephens about the impeachment of Governor Rod Blagojevich. Stevens said the first step has been taken. The House impeachment Friday means the Governor will have to face trial in front of the Illinois State Senate. Stephens said, "The biggest thing that this Governor did wrong was use his public office for personal gain." Stephens doesn’t understand how anyone could try to get money for the historic appointment of Barack Obama's Senate seat.
Stephens says politicians did not come to Springfield to turn the office into a parlor game of "how can I make money for me and my family." He hopes that the Senate follows up on their action and the Governor will be removed from office and will never serve again.
