Powers of Recall

Unlike the residents of California, Illinois citizens have never possessed recall powers.  We have to put up with our governors - for their complete 4 year terms.

Sometimes it's enough to make us squirm.

But maybe that's about to change.  Lawmakers are upset with our current governor - so upset that they working on putting a constitutional amendment before the voters.

Strangely, the legislators are exempting themselves, and judges, from the provisions.

Which proves they're smart guys,
since otherwise
we might recall
them all.
