The Illinois Supreme Court has officially disbarred former Governor Rod Blagojevich.  The decision comes two months after the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission ruled Blagojevich should be stripped of his law license over his corruption charges in 2011.  The former governor was convicted of wire fraud, bribery and attempted extortion.
