According to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, embattled and incredibly corrupt Governor Rod ‘Tony Soprano’ Blagojevich may announce his decision to step aside and/or resign on Monday. She made the statement on Meet The Press earlier today.
There is however considerable question as to exactly what stepping aside would mean. Is he going to resign or will he merely step aside as Governor for the time being? In either case, it would put the Lt. Governor, Patrick Quinn, in as either acting or actual Governor. This would allow him to select a new Senator or to support the proposal to call for a special election to select a new official.
UPDATE: The Guv now says he has no plans to resign…….
