Governors Impeached And Removed From Office

Rod Blagojevich may be hours away from becoming only the eighth governor in U.S. history to be impeached and removed from office. The other seven:

William Holden of North Carolina, 1871
David Butler of Nebraska, 1871
William Sulzer of New York, 1913
James Ferguson of Texas, 1917*
John Walton of Oklahoma, 1923
Henry Johnston of Oklahoma, 1929
Evan Mecham of Arizona, 1988

POSTSCRIPT: Robert Yoon of CNN correctly notes that Ferguson resigned as governor of Texas on Aug. 25, 1917, the day before his conviction was announced.
