policy discussion; election reform

I want to intersperse discussions of policy into the posts about Blagojevich.

Part of my beef with Blagojevich, Madigan and the state Democrats is that they don't show a clear difference between the Democratic version of governing at the state level and the Republican version of governing at the state level.

For example, the Democrats have criticized Republicans on verifiable voting and other election reform issues on the national level. But what are Democrats doing to improving voting systems in Illinois?

Archpundit posted The RFP for the Voting Equipment and Documents and Chicago Voting Equipment Decisions.

But it really seems like the state should be taking the lead. In part my take is that the Fourteenth Amendment logic of Bush v. Gore seems to mandate that voting systems be uniform across whole states.

And you forgot Daughter Madigan...
Isn't it a shame that a Democratic Atty. General would help to shred the 4th Ammendment? Jeez, she wins her 1st ever court appearance and we ALL lose.
