‘And I’m Voting for Scott Lee Cohen’
Democrats have dodged a bullet in Illinois after Scott Lee Cohen, a pawnbroker who concealed a history of drug use and domestic violence until after he won the primary for lieutenant governor, dropped his bid. The Sun-Times story on his withdrawal — which happened at a Super Bowl party — paints a pretty good picture of the guy.
“None of my opponents called to congratulate me, not a senator, not a congressman, not one person called to congratulate me,” he said.
Asked if that hurt his feelings, Cohen said that lack of calls “showed me no respect. It absolutely hurt my feelings.”
You have to feel for Jason Kyle, whose image will now live forever as a proud endorser of a candidate who, in retrospect, practically oozed sleaze from every pore.
