Another antigun pol caught with a gun
This time it's Ill. State Senator Donne Trotter, caught trying to board a plane with a concealed gun.
He's the third Illinois legislator currently facing criminal changes, and can reflect at least that he's not charged with a crime of moral turpitude; the others are charged with bribery and bank fraud. He was running to replace U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., who resigned over financial improprieties, who had run to replace Rep. Mel Reynolds, who resigned over being convicted of statutory rape AND fraud. Maybe they oughta elect him on the theory that the mores of that seat seem to be improving over time, and this would be part of the trend.
