Gov. Rod Blagojevich who was arrested and accused of scheming to sell off Illinois' vacant Senate seat said the decision to impeach him was not a surprise for him.

Blagojevich said Friday the opposition from members of the House to improve health care and cut property taxes proposed by him are related to the impeachment.

The final votes count of members of the House to impeach him was 114-1 making him the first governor to be impeached in the history of Illinois politics.

Blagojevich was arrested on December 9 by FBI agents on public corruption charges including one allegation that he schemed to profit from his power to name President-elect Barack Obama's replacement in the Senate.
