IL Dems let Bush get away with 9/11 convention and change state law

In all the great legislation moving forward in the General Assembly, there are a few stinkers.

Remember the Bush on the Ballot imbroglio? The GOP team is looking to make the election about 9/11, so they are having a partisan rally in New York City in September. I won't ramp up my indignation again (you can read about it here), but the news is that today, the Senate Executive Committee passed out SB 2123 that would change state law to accommodate the September NYC convention.

The bill is here.

I really hope that the Senate Dems take the opportunity to shape the debate and focus it on the exploitation of the tragedy. This is a bad thing that the national Republicans are doing, in my opinion. They should be called out on it.
