Could this State Budget get any uglier?


Governor sueing State House SpeakerIll. governor sues House speaker over special sessions



SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - The arguments over a state budget are escalating again, with Gov. Rod Blagojevich suing the speaker of the Illinois House.

Blagojevich is angry that Speaker Michael Madigan has defied his proclamations requiring the Legislature to meet in special session.

In some cases, Madigan has told lawmakers not to bother showing up. He has also convened sessions at different times of day than Blagojevich had ordered.

Blagojevich announced Monday that he filed suit against his fellow Democrat last week in Sangamon County court.

He wants Madigan to hold sessions at specific times and require members to attend. A state budget has passed, but Blagojevich says other related issues still require attention.

Legislators argue the special sessions are just for show. They note the governor usually doesn't submit proposals for lawmakers to consider.

    Sigh... Napoleon governor is at again... Pass the popcorn. Could the taxpayers sue Baloneybitch for trying to tag a $600 bill for his Tammy Faye makeup job for his press conference appearance a few months ago?

    Baloneybitch paid the $600 back. That was petty cash. I want the $5,000 a day for his daily airplane rides. Let's guess three times a week, 45 weeks a year, five years in office = $3,375,000.

    Add the $5,000 day plus the $600.00 Tammy Faye body and paint look. That might have bern petty cash ofr Baloneybitch. But, I wouldn't put pass him to pass that fee to the taxpayers at the end of the year. Also, I don't think this was the first body and paint makeup job for Baloneybitch since he's been in office. But his purse should be tightening in the budget.

    Little to zero, Chicago Native.

    As bad as Ryan was, I've decided that BaloneyBitch is unworthy of living in the governor's mansion.

    Any suggestions? Maybe Baloneybitch can live in your cat litterbox, eh, kittybowtie? ;-)

    I don't want BaloneyBitch polluting up my litter box. There's a landfill 20 miles west of here. He should have a job there (or making license plates in an orange jumpsuit).
