Standing in the Need of Prayer

In an unprecedented move, the Illinois attorney general, Lisa Madigan, asked the state’s highest court today to strip scandal-plagued Gov. Rod Blagojevich of his powers.

“I recognize that this is an extraordinary request, but these are extraordinary circumstances,” Madigan said at a news conference.

It was not immediately clear when the Supreme Court might take up the matter. The justices also have the discretion to deny the attorney general’s request.

The move came as the governor prayed with several ministers in his home before heading to his office, telling them he is innocent and will be vindicated “when you hear each chapter completely written,” according to one of the pastors.
