From the folks who brought you...

...President B.O. McDreamy...

It has been a crazy week in Illinois politics, perhaps one of the craziest. The main questions that have been flying around in Democratic circles have been: Who knew what about Democratic Lieutenant Governor nominee Scott Lee Cohen, and when did they know it?
And we're not talking parking tickets here...
When Cohen became a candidate, he disclosed that a 2005 domestic battery charge against him had been dismissed. It was only after his victory Tuesday that the details became known: His girlfriend at the time, a prostitute, had accused him of holding a knife to her throat but had failed to appear in court, leading to charges being dropped.
Please note... that's just one of a myriad of charges.

Of course... the reality is... Cohen was simply playing by "Chicago Rules".

Funny how that works.
