ILL-inois: Loser wants loser governor to appoint her comptroller
There is yet more Illinois illness to report. In last month's election, state comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, a Republican, defeated Democrat Sheila Simon. Topinka, 70, died of a stroke on Wednesday. Now Simon, the lame duck lieutenant governor, wants lame duck Democratic Gov. Quinn, whom she wouldn't run with this time around, to appoint her as Topinka's replacement.
If that makes sense to you, then you are definitely not from Illinois.
