NPR reports on the Illinois legislative debate about impeaching Gov. Rod Blagojevich:
Their case for impeachment goes beyond criminal allegations. They say he abused the power of his office: bypassing the Legislature to create new programs he couldn't pay for; circumventing hiring laws to give jobs to political allies; and misappropriating taxpayer funds. "He has snubbed his nose at that oath of office and, therefore, snubbed his nose at the people and the constitution," said Republican Rep. Mike Bost.It's a good thing for presidents that members of Congress don't apply such standards in Washington.
