In a move that is both noble and in contempt of most courts of law, Illinois Governor Blagojevich today kept his vow to avoid his own impeach hearings. To his constituents this move is both endearing for its honest conviction to a promise made, and deeply troubling for its utter disregard for the legal process of the United States.
The beleaguered Governor, who is best recognized for his insistence that his own impeachment is simply not happening, stands to be removed from office for crimes involving the illegal use of a telephone to do his dirty deals.
Legal pundits continue to debate the defense of such bold moves, as the entire escapade seems to be something more akin to an old Twilight Zone episode.
Blagojevich, instead of being impeached, chose to spend his day, on daytime talk shows, amiably passing the time on national television.
