Governor Jim Doyle says he was stunned by the corruption charges brought against the Governor of Illinois.
Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is accused of trying to auction off the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. The charges were brought last Monday, and officials in Illinois have been calling on him to resign since then.
Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle says the allegations will have a huge impact on the governor's ability to lead and make decisions. Still, Doyle is stopping short of saying whether Blagojevich should resign from office. The Governor says he has "enough issues in Wisconsin" than sticking his nose in other state's business.
Doyle does think the state will need to take action to restore public confidence in state government, especially when it comes to filling Obama's vacant Senate seat.
