John Harris resigns as chief of staff to Rod Blagojevich

Yahoo News:
The chief of staff to Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has resigned, three days after he was arrested on government corruption charges along with his boss.

A Blagojevich spokesman said Friday that John Harris had resigned. He provided no other details.

Harris attorney Jim Sotos says his client resigned "because it was the right thing to do, and that's all I'm going to say."

Blagojevich and Harris were arrested Tuesday morning at their homes. Federal authorities accused them of scheming so Blagojevich could enrich himself through his power to appoint President-elect Barack Obama's replacement in the U.S. Senate.
Blagojevich is still being a coward and has yet to resign from his post.

Illinois State Attorney General Lisa Madigan has filed an official complaint with the Illinois Supreme Court asking that Rod Blagojevich be stricken of his gubernatorial powers. Attorney General Madigan called on the governor to step down the other day.
