The Cohen mess for lite guv in Illinois continues to roll downhill, adding mass along the way. The Illinois D's are preparing to meet to select a new candidate for lite guv to run alongside Pat Quinn. That's not the part that has me wondering.
Mike Madigan, powerbroker and head of the Illinois D's, has petitioned to eliminate the post of lite guv by 2015.
He says the position holds no Constitutional value or duty and is a waste of time, money, and resources. So, if something happens to the guv, what then? Well, there is still order of succession. With no lite guv, power passes too...
...the Attorney General. Lisa Madigan. You know...his daughter.
...aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I'm done.
