Noland defends recall vote, broaches impeachment
Tuesday, Jun 17, 2008
* Freshman Sen. Michael Noland (D-Elgin) has a letter to the editor in today’s Daily Herald…
Noland voted against recall, and he lists his reason for doing so. He doesn’t think judges should be recalled, and he believes local political battles in his area are so divisive that recall would be abused.
What he doesn’t mention is that the Senate refused to vote on a recall proposal which didn’t include judges and local officials.
* And then we get to the crux of the matter…
Emphasis added for obvious reasons. Noland apparently believes that this impeachment stuff is all about Lisa. As if the majority of Illinoisans who favor the beginning of impeachment proceedings just want AG Lisa Madigan to be their governor. Weak.
* Last bit…
I’m not sure what he means about the governor being “charged with misconduct.” Is that via the US Attorney or via a House impeachment proceeding?
Anyway, defend the letter and/or pick it apart.
