IIRC, this was a U of I Urbana Republican group that printed the TShirts and presented one to the gov when he was at an appearance there. He obviously took it in stride and sort of made a joke about it. This was already covered at CapFax, complete with this or a very similar photo, and should be in the archives somewhere, but I’m not sure when.
Governor Blagojevich announces a merchandising program that will fully fund the capital program.
The Governor said, “These shirts are available in all sizes. There will be ball caps, sweaters, shorts and visors. I’m pleased to announce that Speaker Madigan has graciously offered to autograph the shirts for an additional $10 with all proceeds going to the Lisa Madigan for Gov….. Hey, who wrote this announcement anyway?”
