IL State Rep Derrick Smith (IL-10) won the primary for his district overwhelmingly. 77%-23% against his opponent.
Good for him, right?
Smith had been arrested the week before on bribery and corruption charges.
Now the Chicago Ward bosses get to appoint who's going to replace him.
These are the kinds of people that are keeping concealed carry from passing and the state economy in shambles because they don't really care who or what they're voting for.
The voting public are morons.
And some wonder why I've been such a pessimist about politics lately, nevermind Mr. "I can get away w/ more crap after the election" Obama, not like we haven't been saying he was going to do that since day one.
