Re: Free on Bond

From a reader:

Can a governor flee the country and still act as governor?

You might think this funny, but I actually asked this question this morning to a legal counsel for an important politician in Illinois. He told me that unlike in many other states, there is nothing in Illinois law to prevent Blagojevich from serving as governor from Mexico or Canada, should he choose to flee. But this is quite far-fetched.
