Won’t Get Fooled Again: Day 28

I got to say — even one steeped in the cynicism of Illinois politics gets fatigued. Revelations about Roland Burris’ selective memory of when and who he talked to about fund raising for our favorite ex-Governor continues to plumb new depths of political depravity. When will the this long state-wide nightmare be over?

On another front — a couple of political science professors have put together an excellent report on Illinois corruption — find it here.
What’s more, the Illinois Attorney General is recommending legislative changes in the state’s Freedom of Information of Information laws — all because of you know who — check it out here.

And, I am pulling together a list of state libraries that are under threat of being shut down or service curtailed because of state budget crunches. If you know what is happening in your state — drop me a line and I will report the results in a near future segment of “Won’t Get Fooled Again”

See you on Day 29.
