Now that Scott Lee Cohen’s running for governor, why did he quit the race after winning the nomination as a democrat for lieutenant governor? He won the primary election fairly; there were no allegations of impropriety after his February 2010 primary win. But Cohen caved to Michael Madigan. Sounds like Pat Quinn. On second though, maybe Scott Lee Cohen could make a good governor.
Because nobody did their job, Scott Lee Cohen has agreed to drop out for the “good of the party.” If he were any other democratic politician, he would have to be dragged away from the general election kicking and screaming. See: Rod Blagojevich, Roland Burris, Todd Stroger. Scott Lee Cohen did the right thing– the ticket would have been unable to win with him on it. But now that he’s off where do the democrats go?
