Official amendatory veto of ethics bill now available

Tuesday, Aug 26, 2008

* You can read the governor’s amendatory veto message of HB824, the ethics bill, by clicking here.

* Unrelated, but the Sun-Times has a late afternoon convention report with some interesting quotes…

Mayoral brother Bill Daley has arrived at the Democratic National Convention, adding a fifth (at least) potential candidate for Illinois governor to the mix here. […]

“January” he said, trying to get back to his breakfast. “I’m going to talk about it next year in a serious way.” […]

“It’s certainly something I’m thinking about,” [Lisa] Madigan said of the governors race. “I’m not going to be supporting Gov. Blagojevich for a third term. I think we need better leadership in the state of Illinois. … It’s not news.”

Asked about Blagojevich’s criticism of her father, House Speaker Mike Madigan, for not attending an Illinois delegation event with Blagojevich, Madigan replied, “I’m not part of their fight, so go find them.”

Giannoulias denied the speeches by himself, Madigan and Hynes on Monday night were a “test run” for the 2010 Democratic governor’s primary.

* More on Bill Daley from Sweet

*He talked to potential donors, asking one I chatted with to stay neutral and not take sides in what could be a crowded primary field.

*He’s already polled statewide and found that he could sell the Daley brand Downstate.

The big question is will voters–especially south of I-80 in Downstate Illinois–not want to vote for Daley because his brother Richard is Mayor of Chicago, his brother John is Finance Chair of the Cook County Board and his father was the longtime legendary Chicago mayor. Daley found that the name Daley is respected in government.

*He’s tested his names against all the players–Gov. Blagojevich, Attorney General Lisa Madigan, Comptroller Dan Hynes and Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias and found nothing in the results that would discourage him from running.

Mid afternoon convention roundup

Tuesday, Aug 26, 2008

* National Review’s Freddoso points out some hypocrisy…

Denver — “[E]thics reforms means getting officials to limit gifts to themselves.” Those are the words of Emil Jones, president of the Illinois senate, in his speech at the Democratic Convention Monday.

Jones would know. He is Barack Obama’s political mentor, and he can now give himself a $578,000 gift. It is a perfectly legal and completely corrupt arrangement that he made ten years ago, with just a little help from Obama.

* And so does Sweet

Democratic Party of Illinois Chairman Michael J. Madigan is hosting a Coors Field reception Wednesday honoring Barack Obama bankrolled by corporations with interests often before the Illinois General Assembly. Madigan is also the powerful Illinois House Speaker.

While Obama’s campaign does not accept contributions from federal lobbyists and political action committees–and Obama bemoans on the campaign trail the influence corporations have over Congress– the Democratic convention here which will hand Obama the Democratic presidential nomination is being underwritten by a variety of corporate sponsors.

* More bickering in Denver

Some Illinois state legislators are furious with Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich for airing the state’s dirty laundry yesterday, while other top Democrats from Barack Obama’s home state took the Democratic National Convention stage to tout their former Springfield colleague.

The controversial Blagojevich was left off Monday’s program – and then he picked that day to announce, back in Chicago, that he was rewriting a major campaign ethics bill that the Legislature passed unanimously this year. Key lawmakers have said they’ll fight him on it. […]

State Rep. Careen Gordon, D-Coal City: “He couldn’t stand not getting attention when we were all out here.’’

State Rep. Lou Lang, D-Chicago: “It was purposefully done on a day that most Democratic elected officials in Illinois were out of town . . . I think the reception here will not be warm.’’

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan: “It’s more antics.’’ Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn: “It’s somewhat petty to pick that particular day to try and take away attention.’’

State Rep. Jack Franks, D-Woodstock: “He was trying in some desperate way to make himself seem somewhat relevant . . . He’s not wanted here.’’

* Rep. Jack Franks, Hillary Clinton’s Illinois co-chair, on Don & Roma…

On Blagojevich claiming that he wasn’t snubbed by the convention: “Well, why would that surprise you? He still denies he’s Public Official A.”

* Comptroller Dan Hynes is a bit too optimistic

“I think this week the unity and the common purpose we have of electing Barack Obama is overwhelming, so I feel very confident that the Illinois Democrats are going to be united this week and throughout the election season,” Hynes said.

* It only took them two months, but the Tribune finally noticed that Bill Daley is considering a run for governor

William Daley, the brother of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, did not dismiss talk Tuesday that he might become one of an array of Democrats seeking the job of Illinois governor in 2010, a post Gov. Rod Blagojevich may try to keep.

Daley, a former Commerce secretary in President Bill Clinton’s administration and the 2000 campaign manager of former Vice President Al Gore’s presidential campaign, told reporters at the Illinois delegation’s meeting that it would not be wrong for them to mention him as a potential candidate.

Daley, who is now an executive with J.P. Morgan Chase, briefly considered making a bid for the governor’s office in 2002, the year the embattled Blagojevich became the first Democrat in more than a quarter century to win election to the post.

Daley has said little about his interest in seeking the governor’s office in two years, when Blagojevich’s second term ends. But Daley acknowledged he has been receiving encouragement for a run for the post and mentioned the Democratic Party’s problems in Springfield, where infighting has kept government at a standstill. […]

He told reporters that he would “talk about next year in a serious way” in January 2009.

* Sweet has more…

Today is the 88th anniversary of women getting the vote and former Commerce Sec. Bill Daley, a top Obama advisor is at Day Two of the Democratic convention co- hosting a reception for the nation’s female Democratic governors, wearing his bankers’ hat. The event is sponsored by JP Morgan Chase; Jamie Dimon, its CEO and chairman and Daley, the vice chairman. Governors attending are Janet Napolitano of Arizonia, Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas, Jennifer Granholm of Michigan, Christine Gregoire of Washington and Ruth Ann Miner of Delaware. Daley is contemplating running for governor in 2010.

* Speaker Madigan downplayed the Emil Jones “Uncle Tom” imbroglio…

llinois House Speaker Michael Madigan (D-Chicago) isn’t worried about a spat among Illinois Democrats in Denver this week. Delmarie Cobb, a delegate for U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.), claims that Illinois Senate President Emil Jones (D-Chicago) called her an “Uncle Tom” for not supporting U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.). Jones says he called her a “Doubting Thomas.”

Madigan says it’s not a big deal. “Democrats are Democrats,” he said. “There are different people among Democrats. But as we move to the general election, we’re all being to be brought together, and we’re all going to working for the same direction, which is to change the direction of this country.”

* Carol Marin

But in this history-making week when the first African American in the nation’s history accepts a presidential nomination, we are reminded that race and gender are unequal conversations in the view of many in my generation of women. And those women felt stung again, just as Clinton delegate Delmarie Cobb did this week when she was accused by Obama’s mentor, state Senate President Emil Jones, of being an “Uncle Tom.”

* Emil Jones this morning…


* Lisa Madigan on Don & Roma…

* Sun-Times convention blog

* Patterson: Illinois delegates’ first-day reviews of the convention logistics were not exactly glowing. When a bus ride from the hotel to the Pepsi Center (which you can see from the hotel) takes 90 minutes, patience quickly evaporates. Then, there’s a significant hike to get into the center’s limited access gates and a thorough pat down by security. “Next time … I’ll bring my lunch,” Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White said of the bus ride.

* Daley: OK to like McCain, don’t vote for him

* Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr: “Barack Obama has the capacity to hit,” Jackson said a breakfast panel just before the opening of the Democratic National Convention. “But he is in the situation where he can’t hit back, which Jackie Robinson could not do. … He had to be able to run the bases, even though the crowd was jeering the first African-American on the field.”

Jones sort of apologizes, disappeared by Dems, upbraided by Halvorson

Tuesday, Aug 26, 2008

* Senate President Emil Jones continues to deny that he called Hillary Clinton supporter Delmarie Cobb an “Uncle Tom,” and there’s even a disagreement over how, exactly, he apologized to Cobb

“He came over, sat down. A couple of people obviously had something to do with it,” Cobb said, without elaborating. “He sat down at the table with me. He said, ‘I apologize and let’s move forward.’ I accepted his apology and said, ‘OK, we will.’ It was never my intention to continue things that would hurt Barack Obama.”

Jones, however, offered a much less apologetic version of his Monday conversation with Cobb.

“I said ‘If that’s what you think I said, I don’t want to have no hard feelings, so I apologize. We’ve known each other too long.’”

Describing the latest encounter to a Sun-Times reporter on the convention floor Monday evening, Jones still insisted he never called Cobb an “Uncle Tom,” saying “But that’s not what I said”

* And one of the witnesses to the alleged event backs up Sen. Jones

Latasha Thomas, Chicago City Council 17th Ward alderman, called the Daily Herald to say she witnessed the event and never heard Jones say “Uncle Tom.”

Another aldermanic witness, Freddrenna Lyle backed up Cobb’s version.

* Mayor Daley wasn’t exactly helpful to Jones

“I think it’s a misuse of words. There’s no ‘Uncle Toms,’ anybody supporting Hillary, Obama. It’s just a mischoice of words,” the mayor said.

Translation: Daley believes Jones said it, but “mischose” his words. Daley has not been all that pleased with Jones lately, so this flap had to make him smile just a wee bit.

* Roland Burris wasn’t all that helpful, either

Roland Burris, the former attorney general and the first black man to win a major statewide office, minimized the importance of the incident. He didn’t condone using the phrase “Uncle Tom” but said it was probably made in jest.

* And Rep. Monique Davis piled on

Rep. Monique Davis, D-Chicago, offered one possible solution, at least when it comes to Jones.

“I think Barack Obama would be wise to keep him locked up in the basement until the election is over,” said Davis, who, like Jones, is black.

* Meanwhile, the Obama-controlled convention allowed Sen. Jones to give his speech yesterday to the assembled crowd despite the controversy, but the DNC’s web masters pulled a George Orwell on Jones

Senate President Emil Jones Jr., a Chicago Democrat, gave a brief speech at the convention, one of several Illinois officials. CSPAN ID’d Jones as an Illinois state senator, omitting the president title.

And the convention Web site has yet (8:26 p.m. Denver time) to post his speech. Those before and after are posted but not his.

Several hours later, the speech still wasn’t posted.

Jones was apparently “disappeared.”

* Senate Majority Leader Debbie Halvorson, a Tier One level congressional candidate, was reportedly apopleptic about Jones’ comments.

“She was talking to Jones outside the breakfast [meeting Monday morning for Illinois Democrats] and I overheard something about this destroying her career,” e-mailed a reporter pal.

* EricV: One interesting little comment is that since Illinois is, of course, front and center they’re having a little problem with the seating. Apparently Illinois always does assigned seating and they’ve got Mayor Daley, Gov. Blagojevich, Mike Madigan, Dick Durbin, and all the big names in the front row. Usually these are the best seats in the house, but this year they’re like the first row in a movie theater. Or maybe a better simile is that of a concert because there’s plenty of fans standing at the base of the stage making those front row seats really bad… They’re trying to redo the seating behind me right now…

Morning Shorts

Tuesday, Aug 26, 2008

* Breaks common at affluent schools are rare in impoverished areas

All 10 affluent schools offered at least 20 minutes of daily recess, usually tacked on to a lunch period of at least 20 minutes. Most of the impoverished schools offered no regular recess and a 20-minute lunch, though two of the schools did squeeze in 10 minutes of recess daily.

The typical affluent school featured far more phys ed than the one period a week usually found at the impoverished schools. And both art and music were common at advantaged schools, while impoverished ones mostly offered art and no music, though one had both and two had neither.

* Meeks Offers to Call Off School Boycott

* Multi-Million Deal Could Prevent School Boycott

* Meeks has new school pilot project - Plan ties funding to performance

A Democratic state senator and a former Republican candidate for governor on Monday proposed a three-year, $40 million pilot project aimed at proving that better funding and more resources would give low-performing schools a lift.

The proposal could lay the groundwork for the long-sought statewide overhaul of public school funding, possibly including a tax increase, once the 2010 race for governor is over.

Sen. James Meeks (D-Chicago), who outlined the proposal with GOP businessman Ron Gidwitz in a meeting with the Tribune editorial board, also tied the proposal to his call for Chicago Public Schools students to boycott the first day of classes Sept. 2.

Meeks said he will rescind his boycott plan if three fellow Chicago Democrats, Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Senate President Emil Jones and House Speaker Michael Madigan, would publicly back the pilot proposal. Meeks said he hoped to meet with them in Denver during the Democratic National Convention.

* Officials awaiting word on IDNR budget cuts

* Blagojevich: Ethics bill will get complete overhaul

Gov. Rod Blagojevich said Monday he’s following through on his promise to “rock the system” by drastically changing an ethics-reform measure to target lawmakers while cracking down on campaign contributors with large state contracts.

Blagojevich, at a news conference in Chicago, said he’ll use both his executive-order and amendatory-veto power to rewrite the measure the legislature sent him in May.

The announcement drew an immediate rebuke from reform advocates and lawmakers, who promised to try to overturn the changes.

* Ethics bill vetoed, sent back

Quinlan said the governor cut the provision of the bill that would restrict donations from people bidding for contracts because it could be an unconstitutional restriction of free speech. Quinlan said the governor strengthened the bill in other ways, such as prohibiting lobbyists and lawyers from donating on behalf of state contractors they represent.

Asked why he did not sign the bill as passed and seek to improve the law later, Blagojevich put the blame on lawmakers for not acting sooner on ethics legislation.

* State Lawmakers Strike Back at Governor

* A governor’s charade

Rather than push legislators to write his “improvements” into law, he’d rather grandstand for the cameras, make noise about reform, and hope that—with public attention focused on the Democratic National Convention in Denver—nobody is paying much attention to the culture of political sleaze back home in Illinois. For those of you reading from Denver: Nothing has changed. The culture of political sleaze is as virulent as ever.

* Eastern budget avoids governor’s slash

* Mounds supporters call for federal takeover

Pauketat and other archaeologists have written letters to state and federal officials urging an agreement. They say the federal government is far better funded to take care of the 2,200-acre property, home to the world’s largest prehistoric earthworks and the centerpiece of a village that once housed 10,000 people.
