The Illinois House impeached Gov. Rod Blagojevich today in a historic vote of 114-1.

“The vote by the House was 114-1 with one member voting ‘present.’ It marks the first time in the state’s 190-year history that a governor has been impeached, despite Illinois’ longstanding reputation for political corruption.

Rep. Milt Patterson (D-Chicago) was the lone vote against impeachment. The ‘present’ vote was cast by Rep. Elga Jefferies (D-Chicago).

A spokesman for the governor said he won’t resign.”
