    Because IL is accustomed to crooked officials. It has become part of the culture to seek officials who maintain a crooked standard. That crooked standard is all they know.

    Why do the people of texas keep voting for guys like Tom Delay?

    Why did the people of Alaska keep re-electing one of the most corrupt senators ever...Ted Stevens?

    Why do you think everybody in Illinois is a dem???

    Maybe it's just that in politics there is a lot of corruption no matter which party you're a member of.

    P.S. The former Governor of Illinois is sitting in a jail cell right now. He was a Republican.

    Illinois has a proud tradition of state politicians getting in trouble, from both parties. The last governor who was put in prison was a Republican. Democrats have always run Chicago and that is where the worst reputation for corruption is, but it is not just one party.

    It is the people of Illinois who suffer. They elect people they think are different, I think Governor B. went in on a platform of reform, I'm not sure.

    Hey!

    Its real simple.

    The Unions are controled by the mob.

    The jobs are mostly unions, so the workers are told what to vote for. And as the Daley Machine....more Dems....are in control of city services, the police, and the construction rackets, and Newpaper people on the take, Mayor Daley and the mob run Chi-town like playing a violin. They keepa their fingers on all the strings, like a puppeteer!

    Likea the opening ofa my movies!

    Source(s): Blago is a loose cannon now, he's talking his head off to anyone that will listen....Too bad, he ain't gonna be around for long.

    Well, George Ryan was a Republican, but Democrats still support Richard 'Vote early, vote often' Daley.

    Honestly???? They don't know any other way. Talk to people in Southern and middle Illinois and then in Chicago. Two totally different worlds.

    You should realize of course that the last Republican Governor of Illinois is currently serving time in prison.

    The people of Illinois do not keep voting these people in. The people of Chicago has that all wrapped up.

    Welcome to Illinois politics. Democrats and Republicans are crooked to the core. You have the Machine in Chicago and George Ryan's cronies.

    Blago hasn't been convicted of anything. Last time I checked that makes him Innocent.
