He's Just Another Illinois Politician

You probably don't follow Illinois politics. I do, because I grew up there, and because it is so darn entertaining. Cohen's rap sheet stuns Illinois Dems - POLITICO.com

Illinois Dems just selected Pat Quin (who took office when Blagojevich left) to run in the November general election. His running mate is Scott Lee Cohen
[Cohen] has a rap sheet that includes alleged domestic battery and tax evasion. The revelation has shocked Democrats, leading to worries that his presence could taint the entire statewide ticket.
He has no intention of pulling out of the race. I mean, is tax evasion really against the law in Illinois. (Seems like so many of Obama's cabinet had the same problem.)

Never a dull moment in Illinois politics.
