I guess I can get behind this idea but I can’t help but think Poe’s motivation lies mainly in pandering to the hometown (Springfield) crowd that is indignant that all things involving state government aren’t centered here. Oh well, you can’t say he isn’t representing his constituents on this.
Update: Rich Miller says the movement of parts of state government to Chicago started long before Blago, Poe’s measure is going nowhere and most Illinoisans live up north. All very true but not very Springfield-centric of him. Our city, love it blindly or leave it. He probably also hates the Springfield troops. And to think, we voted him Springfield Blogger of the year. Harrumph!
