12/9/08 - HYNES CALLS ON GOVERNOR BLAGOJEVICH TO RESIGN

Chicago – Illinois Comptroller Dan Hynes today released the following statement concerning the arrest of Governor Blagojevich on federal corruption charges:

"For the well being of Illinois, Governor Blagojevich must resign immediately. While this investigation is still ongoing, our state cannot afford to remain engulfed in this unfolding scandal. Our government's ability to deal on a daily basis with the fiscal and economic crises we currently face demands leadership and integrity. Our governor cannot provide either, and he needs to do what's right for the people of Illinois.

"On a personal note, I am immensely saddened and angered by these developments. This is perhaps the most embarrassing moment in the history of Illinois government, and a stain that will not be easily removed."
