Just got through listening to the Illinois Senate impeachment vote. All yeses save for two nonvotes: as John Kass calls him, Jimmy DeLeo (D-How You Dooin')  and I believe Terry Link. Will check back.

Update: Just a minute ago the vote was 58-0-1 on the screen, so one of the nonvotes got flipped to a yes.

Update II: They're redoing the roll call.

Update III: Now it's 59-0-0. It's official.

Update IV: 59-0-0 voting that Blago cannot hold state office in the future. Technically Rev. Meeks voted "absolutely."
