Blago Swears in State Senate

Disgraced Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich welcomed the incoming class of state senators in Springfield on Wednesday as he swore in members whose first agenda item is his own impeachment. "Hi guys," he said to reporters. Blago's impeachment trial is set for Jan. 26; the 13-point measure passed in the state house by a vote of 114-1.
