In the hard copy edition, the story was titled, "Rich Governor And Allies Tilt Illinois's Future."
As a quick summary, the story tells how "the richest man in Illinois," billionaire hedge fund owner Kenneth C. Griffin, bought himself a Governor, Bruce Rauner (who is also rich).
This is a profoundly discouraging story of how money can (and will) subvert a healthy and decent politics. I guess my hope is that the discouragement occasioned by the story will not be our final resting place.
When I think of the outrageous and destructive impacts that money is having on our system of self-government, what comes to mind is a phrase from a former President (George H.W. Bush): "This will not stand."
This must not stand!
I think we are going to need that "political revolution" Mr. Sanders is talking about!
