Unhappy birthday, Governor Blago. Please resign immediately for the good of the state, so Lt. Gov. Quinn can appoint someone untainted by your greed and mendacity as our second U.S. Senator.
There are actually fairly recent posted items and photos – Thanksgiving with the Chicago Christian Industrial League, lighting a Christmas tree for an event called “Keeping our kids warm and safe.” I think I must not have the flu, I hardly feel like barfing at all.

I just called the Governor’s Chicago office to leave a message urging the Governor to resign, following a shorter version of the suggested text at a Facebook event page called Call for Resignation:
Rod Blagojevich’s attorney has stated that the Governor has no plans to resign. His resignation is not only the right thing to do, it’s what is expected by the people of Illinois.
STARTING WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10 @ 9 AM CALL ROD BLAGOJEVICH’S OFFICE AND LET HIM KNOW THAT YOU WANT HIS RESIGNATION:
Call (217) 782-6830 or (312) 814-2121
Invite your friends to this event. Let’s get as many people as possible to call Blago’s office between Wednesday, December 10th and Thursday, December 11th!
I called the Chicago number, which is correct. I don’t know what the other number is, I used the contact page from the Illinois.gov site. A polite female voice answered, and I identified myself by name and town and referred to the Gov’s public statement about not resigning. I asked to leave a message: that the Governor should in fact resign for the good of the state of Illinois, so that Lt Gov. Quinn could quickly appoint our next U.S. Senator. Short, sweet, no drama. She thanked me and we said cordial goodbyes.
Now inviting my Illnois Facebook friends and relations to this Call for Resignation event.
