November 7, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Despite the fact he was indicted on bribery charges and expelled from the Illinois House, State Representative Derrick Smith was re-elected in the 10th District...And.
...The numbers Tuesday suggest that to be true. Smith won with 63 percent of the vote.
As expected, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Chicago) cruised to an easy victory with 63 percent of the vote in the Second Congressional District, despite having been absent from work since June. Jackson has also been under two separate federal investigations in the last few months: One regarding his role in Rod Blagojevich's attempt to sell the Senate seat, and another regarding his mismanagement of campaign funds for personal use.Plus:
Longtime Republican state Rep. Angelo “Skip” Saviano of Elmwood Park lost his bid for re-election to Democrat Kathleen Willis of Addison.And:
Des Plaines Mayor Marty Moylan thanks Mary Pat Monteleone, left, and Kathleen Fergus for their support, while visiting with patrons at the Sugar Bowl restaurant after winning the 55th State House District race in Tuesday’s election.Not to mention:
Judge in court to face charges hours after re-election Cook County judge was suspended from bench, charged with battery in March incidentSo between a combination of redistricting and outright stupidity, IL will now remain the laughing stock of the states and there will be no CCW, taxes/fees will continue to skyrocket and the legislature spends us into the 3rd world.
I wash my hands of you.
