Wednesday marks the fourth anniversary of the day former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was impeached.

The Illinois House of Representatives voted 114 to 1 January 9, 2009 to impeach the Blagojevich. His sister-in-law, Rep. Deb Mell, was the lone dissenting vote.

Blagojevich was the first governor impeached in Illinois history.

He was later removed from office following a state Senate trial and a unanimous vote.

Blagojevich is currently serving a 14-year sentence for political corruption in a Colorado prison.
