(You think we should have a look at that list of “acceptable candidates” that Rahm gave Blago’s people, before we allow this guy to shove the governor out of the way for his little girl’s benefit?

Did you know that Lisa Madigan’s daddy was investigated by the Feds for having contacted the Chicago Union bosses before they threw their support behind Madigan’s little girl?
Did you know that Lisa Madigan’s daddy paid his staffers huge bonuses with taxpayer money, right before they took leave so they could go work “pro-bono” on his daughter’s campaign?)
