Hard hitting Lisa Madigan came out today and filed with the Illinois Supreme Court! This us an unprecedented move. She is the lawyer for the State of Illinois and is asking the Supreme Court to place Blgojevich on a Temp. Disability leave from his position as Governor of the State of Illinois. She is matter of fact that this is the best way to move forward and that the state of Illinois can continue to conduct its business. in the interim, she is asking the Supreme Court that the Lt. Governor Pat Quinn to step in and govern the state.
Reporters even asked Madigan if she was setting up shop for herself to run for the Senate seat. With a small chuckle Ms. Lisa Madigan said sternly that she is happy being the lawyer for Illinois and has no intentions of moving to the Senate or other. She is content where she is.
And personally I think she does a great job. She is right on top of this and calling for Governor Blagojevich’s impeachment is the natural progression of a matter such as this. But until that time the the governor is proven guilty, any move now must be temporary in nature. We are all innocent until proven we are not. The Governor will not be excused from ceremonial duties. In other words, he can conduct openings and picture opportunities, memorials,etc.
I am not sure that anyone may want a ceremony done by the governor at this point. Somehow until or if he is proven not guilty, everything seems so tainted.
Just my thoughts, just my opinions, and always in a conversationalTone.
