Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich continues to haunt the Illinois General Assembly.
A resolution calling for an investigation into alleged legislative misconduct claimed by Blagojevich made tempers flare Wednesday.
Blagojevich was impeached and ousted from office Jan. 29. Last week, he told a morning Chicago radio program that a legislative leader sought his help to clean up after another lawmaker had an affair.
Rep. Jack Franks, D-Woodstock, introduced a resolution asking the local state's attorney to investigate the matter.
GOP Leader Tom Cross of Oswego claimed the measure was meant to punish Republicans for questioning the Democrats' handling of new testimony by U.S. Sen. Roland Burris about how he got his job.
Franks withdrew the resolution, claiming he had no idea who the legislator was.
