Blago's Plea To "The People"

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Reaction to Rod Blagojevich's closing argument at his impeachment trial and subsequent ouster from office is trickling in.

Sen. Roland Burris said his thoughts and prayers are with the Blagojevich family and with the people of Illinois.

In a statement, Burris said he stands behind the Senate's decision to remove Blagojevich from office.

"As I've repeatedly stated, the Governor must be held accountable for his actions to the legislature, in a court of law and to the people of the State of Illinois," Burris said.

Senate minority leader Christine Radogno said she was pleased with the outcome of the trial and thought the proceedings were held in a dignified, professional manner.

Earlier in the day, it seemed that more people around Chicago wanted to hear what Gov. Rod Blagojevich had to say during the closing argument of his impeachment trial than President Barack Obama's inaugural address.

Customers at Abt Electronics in Glenview Thursday watched hundreds of Blagojevichs on hundreds of flat screen TVs as the governor repeated that he'd done nothing wrong and that he should not be removed from office.

Reaction to the speech at the store was split.

Some said the governor is "an idiot" for not addressing the specific charges against him. Others said it was unfair that Blagojevich wasn't allowed to call witnesses and they would be sorry to see him go down.
