[January 30, 2009]  CHICAGO (AP) -- Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he's saddened, but not surprised, by the state Senate's decision to boot him from office.

RestaurantBlagojevich spoke to reporters and neighbors gathered outside his home on Chicago's North Side.

He says he "loves the people of Illinois" more than ever, and he intends to keep fighting to clear his name. And he says he isn't looking for any pity.

The Democrat also continued to tout his accomplishments on issues such as health care during his tenure in office.
