Maybe there is hope for Illinois! The Feds are trying!
This story is in the Chicago papers, but since you can’t read them for free (if you reached your limit), read it here:
Ed’s wife is on the Illinois Supreme Court.
I met Ed Burke while poll watching in Chicago. He was on the ballot, but walked in with treats for the election judges and then made the rounds shaking hands. He was dressed like a 1920’s gangster – pinned striped suit with matching silk pocket-handkerchief and hat. Electioneering at a polling place is a crime, but there was nobody to call. Representatives from Lisa Madigan’s office were present making sure the election was “fair”.
This is HUGE folks!
