Rod Blagojevich is gone. The vote was 59-0. And for good measure, the Illinois Senate also voted 59-0 to bar Blago from ever holding public office in Illinois again. No word on whether or not he is barred from appearing on Top Chef or American Idol; he likely has a standing invitation for the Biggest Loser, though.
Don't think this is over, though. Patrick Fitzgerald will be bringing Blago to justice soon. But he might want to hear what Blago has to say. There's a pretty good chance that Blago knows some things that might make some of the swells who sat in judgment of him today just a little bit nervous.
