So, I was not surprised when I read that Illinois Speaker Mike Madigan proposed doing away with the office of Lieutenant Governor in a Constitutional amendment. "Why weren't you surprised?" you ask. Well, because I knew (after a brief refresher) that the elimination of the Lieutenant Governor's office would result in the Attorney General becoming the first in line of Gubernatorial succession. No big deal, right? Wrong-- Lil Mikey's daughter just so happens to be the current Attorney General. And, she is running pretty much unopposed for another term (and will continue to run unopposed for the foreseeable future).
This leads me to wonder: what dirt do the Mad Madigans have on Patrick Quinn and/or his Republican competitors?
Illinois-- the Land of Political Creepin'.
