Atty. General Lisa Madigan called on the Illinois Supreme Court today to temporarily remove Gov. Rod Blagojevich from office and appoint Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn as acting governor, "so the business of the state of Illinois can go forward."
Madigan said she wants the court to bar Blagojevich from directing state contracts along with a broad range of state business.
"We think it is very clear he is incapable of serving," Madigan said of the governor during a news conference in downtown Chicago.
One of her goals is to prevent Blagojevich from using his power to appoint a U.S. senator to replace President-elect Barack Obama, who abandoned the seat as he prepares to enter the White House.
