Run Scott Run!

  • Scott Lee Cohen, the pawnbroker who flamed out of Illinois politics just days after voters nominated him as the Democratic lieutenant governor candidate, is making plans to run for governor.

    Cohen last weekend told House Speaker Michael Madigan, who doubles as state Democratic Party chairman, that he intends to mount an independent run for governor, Madigan's spokesman said. In addition, a Cohen adviser confirmed Friday that Cohen plans to announce his candidacy this week and is trying to find a suitable running mate.

    "He came in, in the morning (April 17), and told Madigan he was running for governor as an independent," said Madigan spokesman Steve Brown. Madigan replied he would be supporting the Democratic ticket, Brown said.
Since they wouldn't let him run for the #2 spot, he might as well try for the whole kit and caboodle. Anything that sucks votes away from Quinn is a good thing.

Cohen is a delusional asshole.

Not that he's any worse than Quinn or Brady.

David Hoffman might not be bad as a running mate on an anti-corruption platform.

Hey, look at it this way, he's already been arrested, so if he gets in, it'll be one less thing on his "to do" list.

Yeah, great. Now Cohen can go fuck that election up just like the last one. This way, the Democratic fucktard machine can put whomever they choose in the governor's chair without an election too.

This guy's a paid shitheel for the Dumbocrats, used for the purpose of usurping the election process to install whomever they want on a ticket or in office.

The only problem is now this Jag has the potential to "suck votes away" from Brady as well. If we get stuck with Quinn for a full term, we're really fucked!!

The sad part is, I think this guy will suck more Republican vote than Democrats.

I don't even know why he got out. If he would have stayed when that group wanted to replace him, that would have looked good for him....

This goof doesn't have a chance in hell.

A fool and his money soon will be parted!

He'll stay in as an independent just long enough for Madigan to pay off his (Lt. Gov. race) campaign debt. That's what this is about!

If Cohen really wanted to be part of the election, why didn't he just stay on the ballot as the Lt Governor nominee? He was elected and could not have been removed Instead he backs down and now jumps back in the race Should have told Madigan he was staying in the race and running as the Lt. Governor

They make a big deal of the fact that he held a knife to his hooker/girlfriend's throat? What politician hasn't done that? Thats on every candidate's bio.
