Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich Has Been Removed from Office

Voting has  just started to remove Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) from office and the Senate has just achieved enough votes to officially remove him from office (40 votes).  So far, no one has voted Nay.

UPDATE (5:43 P.M. EST): He has been unanimously removed from office.  All 59 Senators voted to remove him from office.

UPDATE (10:48 P.M. EST): He has also been barred from ever holding public office in the state of Illinois.  That vote was unanimous, again 59-0.
