Illinois primaries

One bright spot for me in yesterday’s voting: it appears that Illinois voters don’t think much of Bruce Rauner. The best discussion I’ve been able to find is in the pages of CSU Faculty Voice, a blog written by Chicago State University faculty. This post reads yesterday’s tea leaves.

Our governor appears to have a special animus against Chicago State, a school with a difficult recent history. Kudos to CSU faculty who have been courageous enough to call out malfeasance at their school and in state government.

It is delightful to see the anachronism of someone still believing in parties as representative of good and bad. Myths die hard for the diehard.

No diehards here. But some officeholders are more destructive than others. Anyone who’s lost a job because of our governor’s gamesmanship can speak to that point. CSU, by the way, has suffered greatly because of Democratic officeholders who refused to acknowledge administrative corruption.
