Ill. GOP Chairman: Democrats Empowered Blagojevich

Illinois Republican Party Chairman Andy McKenna blames Democrats for empowering now-indicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

McKenna says Democrats supported Blagojevich's 2006 re-election even as evidence against the former governor mounted.

McKenna calls the Thursday indictment an embarrassment for the state.

Federal prosecutors indicted Blagojevich on corruption charges. Blagojevich's brother and four other former allies and aides have been indicted, too.

Blagojevich has maintained his innocence since his arrest last year.
