Disappointing action out of the Illinois General Assembly -- Democrats have passed SB 2123 to accommodate the Republicans' September convention in New York City. It passed unanimously without anyone speaking against it a few minutes ago.
The bill is here.
I don't understand why Illinois Democrats are allowing the Bush campaign to take advantage of the 9/11 tragedy with an illegally (at least for now) late convention without even attempting to push back.
I really belive it's a dishonorable move by the Bush campaign, and the Democrats are just letting them get away with it. It's a real missed opportunity.
I understand that the NYC convention isn't the fault of the Illinois Republicans, and that the legislators are finding common ground while they camp out in Springfield after the governor calls a special session every day, but this is ridiculous.
