House panel sending impeachment to the floor today

The soon-to-be ex-governor of Illinois got one step closer to getting thrown out this morning:

The Illinois House impeachment committee has drafted a report calling for the impeachment of Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

The report could still be amended when the committee meets later today. But it is expected to be sent to the full House, which would then take up impeachment of the governor.

In the 69-page report, committee members noted that the governor refused to testify and rebut any of the allegations involving his conduct or the federal criminal charges surrounding his arrest at his home Dec. 9.

It could hit the Illinois Senate before the end of the month.
