Trib calls it "a technical problem with Illinois election law" Yeah.

Ray Long and John Chase in their Chicago Tribune article here call the issue "a technical problem with Illinois election law" in their otherwise great run-down of the ethics reform triumph.

There's nothing technical about a deadline that is knowingly violated a year and a half ahead of time in order to exploit the 9/11 tragedy. This wasn't a mistake. This was an arrogant decision by the Bush campaign to go ahead and break a dozen or so state laws and assume that the states would roll over -- that's how hungry they are to use the anniversary of the attacks to help the Bush campaign. It's dishonorable. It's worse than the fighter pilot costume with the military-as-prop stunt. This convention will be the mass-grave-as-prop stunt.
