ABC News’ Rick Klein Reports: Without comment or explanation, the Illinois Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a request by Attorney General Lisa Madigan to relieve Gov. Rod Blagojevich of his duties.

The ruling keeps the onus on the state legislature — which has just begun what could be long impeachment proceedings — to seek Blagojevich’s removal.

In short, the easy way out for state Democrats has just been slammed shut.
