(WFIE) - There's a call for Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to be impeached if he doesn't resign first.
The governor is out of jail Wednesday morning after he and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested for corruption, solicitation of bribery and conspiracy of mail and wire fraud.
Federal investigators say the governor tried to sell President Elect Barack Obama's senate seat. Obama tells reporters he'd had no contact with the governor over who should fill the seat.
Prosecutors say wiretaps show Blagojevich said in several cases that he wanted campaign funds and cash up front, a high-paid non-profit job for himself, or one for his wife.
