Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan in trouble?

Or, wily as he is, will he be able to hang on?

Things are not looking good for Illinois’ current biggest crook. The guy is 78 - I wonder why these guys hang on so long, but then figure they have no interests outside of power. I was actually surprised he ran - and won - again just last month.

It is easy to say that right now he is the single biggest problem for IL, but things are so fucked up here, I can’t begin to get my mind around how the state is going to dig out WHOEVER is in charge.

I hope so.

It is really difficult to vanquish a lich until you first locate and destroy its phylactery.
