Don’t blame me, I voted for nobody

Larry Ribstein —  3 November 2010

Illinois has filled the Obama seat with a Republican.  Too bad for the Democrats that (1) Blago couldn’t sell the seat; and (2) they didn’t want an election back when they could have elected a Democrat. And now Senator Kirk will be able to vote to continue the Bush tax cut in the lame duck Congress.

Anyway, unlike most Illinoisians I can be sure that I didn’t vote yesterday for a future felon.  Here’s why.
