Illinois governor ignores deadline in impeachment
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has missed another deadline in the build up to next week's impeachment trial.
Blagojevich was supposed to tell the state Senate what people and documents he wanted to subpoena for the trial. The deadline was 4 p.m. Wednesday.
But a Senate spokeswoman said the governor didn't submit the list of proposed subpoenas. The prosecution filed a list, but it won't be made public until today.
Blagojevich has ignored other deadlines. He refused to file a response to the impeachment charges or to seek to have the charges dismissed.
Blagojevich is accused of abusing his power by scheming to benefit from a Senate appointment, circumventing hiring laws and defying decisions by the legislature.
