Bring out yer guns! (ding, ding) Bring out yer guns! - apologies to Monty Python.
State Sen. Donne Trotter is being charged for attempting to bring a gun onto a plane at O'Hare airport.
His arrest brings the number of sitting Illinois lawmakers facing criminal charges to three, which is a high-water mark in recent political memory at the Statehouse. Trotter now joins state Rep. Derrick Smith (D-Chicago), who faces a federal bribery charge, and state Rep. La Shawn Ford (D-Chicago), who was indicted last week on federal bank fraud charges.
It seems clear that law enforcement agents are all a bunch of dang Republicans who actively discriminate against fine, upstanding Democratics.
