graphic by jburwen

President Elect Barack Obama has called on embattled Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich to resign:

"The President-elect agrees with Lt. Gov. Quinn and many others that under the current circumstances it is difficult for the governor to effectively do his job and serve the people of Illinois," Robert Gibbs, the incoming White House press secretary, said.

Gibbs also added that the Illinois state legislature should put in process a new system to pick a new Senator to fill the seat vacated by Obama.
