Not surprisingly, they're now calling for Blogo to resign. That would be the right thing to do, and there is a Lt. Governor there who could immediately step in, but the original question still remains: Who will be Illinois' junior Senator?
They're talking about having some sort of special election to fill this seat. The problem I have here is that there is already a process for filling that seat, and a special election isn't part of that. The Governor appoints the new Senator. The thinking is that whoever takes that seat would be tainted by this scandal, so who wants it?
I say that if the IL System is corrupt, then they should sleep in the bed that they have made. Don't make shit up just to keep from further embarrassing the Party.
