Illinois politics

Via Jim Geraghty comes a buried lede in an Associated Press dispatch regarding Rod Balgojevich-appointed Sen. Roland Burris:

[Burris] also said he closed his 2002 campaign for governor without repaying a $1.2 million loan to a businessman who also made contributions to Blagojevich. Burris, a former state attorney general, said he'd never been asked to repay the money.

Apparently that's legal in Illinois -- but it sure doesn't sound ethical.

The story also leaves out the most important fact: What is this businessman's name and how can one go about getting a loan that you're not expected to pay back.

They don't want states, SCOTUS (at least not one that protects individual rights) or Senate. They want direct national control--& they want corporations to help implement policies & shut down expression that threatens them. I just wish they knew the definition of "fascist"
