Illinois state workers to get mandatory ethics training from Gov. Blagojevich's administration
CHICAGO (AP) -- Think of a state that could use a little refresher course on ethics in government. There's a good chance a certain state whose governor allegedly tried to sell a U.S. Senate seat comes to mind.
And as it turns out, Illinois is set to hold just such an ethics course for state workers this Wednesday.
More than 200 state employees are expected to take part in the ethics seminar at University of Illinois-Chicago. Featured speakers include agency heads, as well as speakers from Gov. Rod Blagojevich's own office.
And there could be a timely lesson for participants. State legislators could vote to impeach Blagojevich on corruption allegations during the same week.
