Deputy governor Greenlee resigns

CHICAGO Spokeswoman Kelley Quinn on Wednesday said Deputy Gov. Bob Greenlee resigned. The reason for his resignation wasn't immediately clear.

Greenlee's resignation comes a day after Blagojevich was arrested on federal corruption charges.

Greenlee was promoted to be a top aide to Blagojevich in June, replacing former Deputy Governor Sheila Nix. Greenlee had been a top administration aide previously.

State records indicate the 33-year-old Greenlee lives in Chicago and earned $149,000 a year.
