Politics – April 7 election set for Emanuel’s seat – ArcaMax Publishing

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Monday set April 7 for a special election to fill the U.S. House seat Rahm Emanuel gave up to join the Obama administration.

Blagojevich, who is facing federal corruption charges, issued a Writ off Election from his Capitol office in Springfield that also set March 3 as the date for a special primary election, if one is needed.

Wait. Wait. So they’re going to have a special election for Emanuel’s house seat, but he wants to appoint someone to fill Obama’s Senate seat?

  1. The dems were too afraid they were going to lose the seat. So much for constituency.

  2. i’m hoping Blagojevich will inspire Congress to finally grow a pair and start doing what’s best for the people they represent (by putting this guy away for a long time)
