Curious as to why the guy who hit me and ran isn't listed on here. He was charged and booked with a lot of chargers.

Better is subjective. If you're a business owner, Rauner has said he wants to cut your business taxes to make a friendlier environment. If you hire a service, Rauner wants to create a new "Service Tax" that would hit consumers of more than 2 dozen services. We already know what Quinn's done to taxes. So I guess the answer to "better" is.......neither, really.

This man is a Chicago gangster politician just like the rest of em, looks like he is gonna have trouble coming up for sending armed thugs to the homes of people who signed a petition to get a Libertarian on the ballot (Chad Grimm) If we support this man we are no better than Blago.

Pike County, Illinois State's Attorney resigns

2 months, 4 weeks ago by Bob Gough

Pike County State’s Attorney Carrie Boyd has resigned, according to Pike County Board Chairman Andy Borrowman.
 
Just last month, Boyd charged the Pike County Sheriff Paul Petty with official misconduct. Petty is accused of not getting evidence through blood samples before embalming the body of Shanda M. Lopez of Milton following her death.
 
Petty is the county's coroner as well as sheriff. He is scheduled to be in court today to face the charges.
 
Borrowman told KHQA News that that Boyd resigned via voice mail and cited personal reasons. He will meet with Chief Judge Diane Lagoski to decide how to proceed with the case. 

The County Board will now have to meet to appoint a replacement from the Democratic party and a special primary will need to be held before the November general election.
