Well, the Chicago controlled Illinois media has done it again. It’s allowed another unsavory Democrat candidate with criminal propensities to slide by unnoticed and to be placed before the voters un-exposed as the low-end sort of fellow he is. And, just like clockwork, this drug addled nut has been elevated to nominee by the Democrat sheeple of the Land of Lincoln — proving that Democrats will vote for a ham sandwich if one is put before them. This media malfeasance only works in favor of Illinois Democrats, though. To prove it all one need do is remember the 2004 case of Republican Jack Ryan. We have but to recall how the Illinois media destroyed this man over what they claimed in wide-eyed shock was his outrageous behavior and remember how the Chicago controlled media torpedoed this man’s career over what they felt was his unsuitability for higher office.Corrupt Democrats in Illinois are a dime a dozen. Hell, Barry's from there. he should know. And the fact that Lee won't step down just shows you how bad the state of the Democrat party is under Barry's leadership.
It’s all a pretty ho-hum tale of media malfeasance and a case of the Democrat Party’s typical sort of low-brow candidates in Chillinois… or is it Illcago? It happens all the time in here, in any case. The Democrats put up a criminal as a candidate, the media yawns and reports on some Hollywood story instead, the voters that claim a Democrat ballot vote him to the head of the class, and then the media suddenly wakes up with cries of faux outrage. It’s a typical pattern, really.
This current case is that of Scott Lee Cohen, pawn shop king, wife abuser, steroid addict, and now your Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor. The guy really has no respectable qualifications for office. As a teen he flunked out of High School — but did get his GED, at least. He was once addicted to steroids so badly that he beat up his wife repeatedly because of the fits of rage the drug brought upon him. He was once arrested for holding a knife to the throat of live-in girl friend who also happened to be a prostitute. It’s a pretty messy life Mr. Cohen’s lived.
Scott Lee Cohen is certainly the Jerry Springer candidate, here. Yet the Chicago led Illinois media was practically silent about this low-end character whose life reads like a rejected sub-plot from a bad 70s cop show. And the half-witted Democrat voters of the Sucker State* voted him right in as their official nominee for Lt. Governor. The Democrat Party isn’t above criticism, either. Cohen’s endorsement list included prominent Chicago Aldermen and groups like the Illinois Committee for Honest Government and Planned Parenthood.
Of course, with all the many Democrat pols that end up in jail in Illinois, I can’t say that Cohen is really all that unusual at this point. But whether his past would have caused voters to shy from him or not, the media fell down on the job of bothering to inform them of it.
