Illinois Wouldn't Receive Stimulus With Blago In Governance

There is an interesting piece of information that I ran upon regarding a link between Blago, impeached Governor of Illinois, and the stimulus/rescue package. Did you know that Illinois would not receive any stimulus money unless Blagojevich was ousted?

"None of the funds provided by this Act may be made available to the State of Illinois, or any agency of the State, unless (1) the use of such funds by the State is approved in legislation enacted by the State after the date of the enactment of this Act, or (2) Rod R. Blagojevich no longer holds the office of Governor of the State of Illinois.The preceding sentence shall not apply to any funds provided directly to a unit of local government (1) by a Federal department or agency, or (2) by an established formula from the State."

Did he receive proper and lawful treatment? I'm not sure.
