Democrats in the Illinois House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to anoint state Rep.
Finally, Mike Madigan is no longer the Illinois Speaker of the House. He’s basically been speaker since 1983. He’s being replaced by Emanuel “Chris” Welch. There’s a progressive push amongst Dems in Illinois. We’ll see how it goes.
I expect the corruption to continue. That’s what Illinois is best known for, corrupt politicians on both sides of the aisle. Oh yeah, and corn. We love our underfunded pensions and high property taxes. The state is in great financial shape. Come join us.
EviLore Can I please get a title edit? I was happy on the posting trigger.
