Questions abound in 2005 arrest of Democratic lieutenant governor nominee

This is what happens when low turnout at election time allows people of easily checked questionable character end up in positions of power and then cruise up the ladder from pure voter apathy, getting elected with a couple thousand votes sometimes.

Which is incredible when we think the incalculable price that's paid so we have the  privilege.

New questions in 2005 arrest of Democratic lieutenant governor nominee:

Clout St: "The newly minted Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor said Wednesday he doesn’t think a 2005 domestic battery arrest should hurt him in the fall general election, although records in the case raise questions about his version of events.

Scott Lee Cohen, a pawnbroker who was the surprise winner in the little-publicized contest among half a dozen candidates, had previously disclosed the arrest. He described it Wednesday as an argument with his drunken girlfriend and said he didn’t lay a hand on her, though she called the police and had him taken into custody.

But the official police and court records show that the woman alleged Cohen put a knife to her throat and pushed her head against the wall.

In their October 14 arrest report detailing the complaint from the 24-year-old woman, Chicago police noted they observed “mild abrasions from knife wound” on her neck. They also noted “minor scars on her hand from her trying to defend herself against the arrestee swinging the knife at her.” The report notes the woman was seen by ambulance personnel but not taken to a hospital.

The case was dropped a month later when the woman did not show up for a court date.  more

Money can do that sometimes.

Nothing against earning an honest living, but pawnbrokers, as this gentleman is, aren't exactly the first folks at church on Sunday's if you know what I mean. Especially ones in urban areas along with everywhere else in a bad economy such as this exploits the desperation, as well as feed the drug trades acting as depositories for stolen goods fueling the crime rate

And while computers have made it more difficult, they can't check everywhere and everyone there is to check.


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
